, a band that started with a few thrift store Casios and a hardcore lead-singer, has come a long way into the realm of odd, droning electro-pop. Wesley Eisold is better known as the front-man of bands like Some Girls and American Nightmare, adding a certain electrified goth angle to the otherwise dance-floor ready tunes. It is kind of like Hercules and Love Affair, in that it supplants a very specific voice into a very different aesthetic without losing said voice and its nuances. Almost every track comes fully distorted and tough to follow; Eisold is blurred beyond understanding behind techno sheets. Head-bobbing ensues; each track generates a hook or two to keep interest dancing despite lyrical confusion.
