Onelung: Binary Pop Songs (Monkey/Global Routes)

Behind the unappealing nom de disque is Auckland electronica musician Kevin Tutt whose previous album Nu Scientist was a real, if overlooked, gem.

Once again located somewhere between the harder end of Brian Eno ambient-pop and slightly funky electronica -- with real instruments like cello and bass, and various vocalists alongside samples and electronics -- this is music with heart, soul and smarts.

It's a wonder ad agencies and film producers aren't sprinting to get Tutt onboard for soundtracks.

Here he effortlessly shuffles the deck again for an album which provokes and delights in equal measure.
