PTTRNS - BODY PRESSURE (CD)


"Body Pressure is party music: it has strong, propulsive grooves, and good, entertaining songs; but it is also a self-aware attempt to build a community of feeling against a cold and uncaring world, and at the same time a critical acknowledgement of that gelidity and indifference. Few musical utterances speak the subject as concretely and as erotically as singing, but the particular form of the vocal delivery on Body Pressure serves to undermine its specificity: because it evokes so clearly the sound of a specific era, and because those stylistic tropes encode an emotional distance and disconnection, the voice seems to belong to a body of practice as much as it does to an individual, for all that the performances are impassioned and committed. The same observation could be made of the album as a whole; it's a sincere and heartfelt piece of work, which effaces the traces of its own creators. Equal parts pitches, rhythms and instants."
