BASTARDLOVE

Describing themselves as making 'Electronic Music For The Shopping Generation" Panzerveps are Alex Jarlev and Halvard Djubvik. Going by the band name and album title I was expecting something quite harsh and/or aggressive but that's not actually the case. In fact, anyone who enjoys the more emotional, harder end of synthpop with deeper masculine vocals would do well to check Panzerveps out.

The opening tracks "White Noise" and "Deported" are the most obviously dancefloor friendly offerings to be found here and aquit themselves well enough in this respect although as the album progresses it becomes increasingly clear that the duo's ambitions go further than this with widespread use of deep bass backing promoting an increasingly introspective and evocative feel. Although there are some EBM elements on tracks such as the muscular "Resample" and the pacier "Blindly Into" this darker feeling pretty much rules the roost for the most part, allied to an often intense emotional delivery. The suprising use of analogue rhythms on "Happy Go War", the excellent "Aquittance" with it's instantly memorable leadlines and "When It's Over" give this more introspective mood full rein with a sonorous and moody backing that's slightly reminiscient of Mesh's slower works, with, in the latter case, industrial undertones and a nicely melodic chorus, just for good measure.

Whilst it's not without a constantly powerful undercurrent this is first and foremost a more thoughtful, heartfelt release that offers much potential for repeated listenings and a fitting accompaniment for your more thoughtful moments and if you can get over the short 41 minute duration then you're laughing!
