PVT | Disconnect
Heavy, heavy The Cure vibe. (With maybe a little Radiohead and Beirut.) Love this romantic and nervy previously-unreleased track from PVT’s “Homosapien” sessions. It seems to be about emotional detachment, referencing human connection to electronics: “Disconnected / From a feeling / Turn your phone off / Let it ring / Disconnect … / It’s hard to know what is real / So ask me nicely, one more time, with feeling …” You can get this track as an extra on the band’s deluxe edition of their latest record. The curling bass and girly mid-track vocal interjections are wonderful. You can follow the band at facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
