PVT, the (electro) thunder from Down Under, are back with a stellar new album, New Spirit. We recently did a one-hour phoner with PVT drummer Laurence Pike and chewed on the musical marrow of many things. As well as drumming with PVT, Laurence has released music with jazz artist Mick Nock, art-rock band Jack Ladder and The Dreamlanders and also worked on an ambient electronic project called Szun Waves with UK electro producer Luke Abbott.
Australian experimental electro-rock band PVT, formerly signed to Warp Records who are now with the Brooklyn label Felte Sounds, have recently released their fourth album, Homosapien. Drummer Laurence Pike spoke with us via Skype about a range of topics at the end of the band’s recent Australian tour.
