8/10 Mike Staff review, 08 April 2014

Jon Tejada and singer Kimi Recor have collaborated previously, but on Bavaria they've finally made it official and become a duo. They're keeping it simple here with Tejada focusing exclusively on modular synth programming and Recor adding vocals for a cold and thoughtful synthpop sound.

The star of the show is of course Tejada's brilliantly subtle loops of rhythm and melody which twitch and bleep with an unflappable coolness, providing a brittle melodic framework for Recor to drape her silky and strangely dispassionate vocals over. The two are on particularly good form on 'When We Were Young', the vocals glitching in harmony with a lively patchwork of clicky beats and slightly acid-flavoured bloops and beeps. 'Made of Light' is good too, reminding me of some of Bjork's early stuff with its ghostly and rhythmically confusing vocal line.

It's sometimes a weird and unsettling combination because Recor's voice is quite cold and precise, while Tejada's synths are what brings a more chaotic human element through their intricately shifting idiosyncrasies. It's cool, deadpan late night pop packed with dizzying layers of modular synth mastery.
