Phil Void / Press

“Phil Void's 2008 full feature effort "Delusions of the pampered" is an uncompromising act of pre-meditated "mRRda" committed against the casual concept of silence. The premiere name of the central game is a massively irresistible urge to deliver variety both in the context of intensity and musical rhetorics. The album is not reluctant to showcase a wide spectrum of genres to be visited, and finds an abundant amount of playtime to be spent by the act of performing said visitations with various key strategies stored in the whimsical mind. The mere potentiality of playfulness is invited, welcomed- and even praised throughout the record, regardless of the inevitable consequence of how the spin absorbs the inescapable lack a cohesive-, abundant flow to it, as result of the conscious decision of not wanting to have to tolerate a label that it could be shackled with.”

“Back in 2008, Phil Void released a full length album titled “Delusions of the Pampered”. This release, published under Last Stop Records, is a collection of 12 songs that blur the lines between alternative rock and avant-garde, echoing the work of seminal performers the likes of Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo or Broken Social Scene, just to mention but a few. Phil Void’s direct and essentialist approach to sound combines with his witty lyricism and iconoclastic antics, bridging the gaps between galvanizing poetry and gritty garage rock aesthetics. One of the most striking aspects of this record is that the songs featured within the release appear experimental and somewhat free-form, sporting a very genuine and spontaneous feel. On the other hand, these songs are far from being impromptu jam sessions. The production is remarkably detailed and there is a really obvious attention to details and concept planning that runs like a thread keeping the entire album together.”
