pierre bastien - Machinations
**2 x disc set includes DVD, new on Rephlex** Rephlex present their 2nd full length album with electronic instrument-maker and composer, Pierre Bastien. Electro and acoustic sounds manifest in the Frenchman's uniquely endearing soundworld, one informed by old jazz and traditional world musics and his background as a professional bass player yet evidently in thrall to the possible tones, timbres and effects afforded by machines. If we're talking comparisons, we'd say Goodiepal, maybe Jimi Tenor, Jonny Trunk in spirit, or some of Graham Massey's weirder output, but ultimately this is his world; a peacefully seductive and sophisticated place caught between the old world and pangs for the future. Like the label say, this is music that grandparents and grandchildren alike will understand and enjoy, and that's quite some achievement. Gotta love the palindromic track titles, too!
