ERNEST GONZALES – Been Meaning To Tell You

February 7, 2010

When I first heard of this album, it was described as “electronic.” I haven’t been listening to a lot of “electronic” music lately but the cover art was too amazing for me to pass this up without a listen. The artwork was made by having a number of artists each illustrate what they saw after […]

Yip-YipTwo Kings of the Same Kingdom

February 7, 2008

Ridiculous spastic electronic noise rock. Craziness. May induce headaches and/or seizures. Visit their myspace for more seizure-inducing content if this album is not enough. For fans of Dan Deacon and cracked electronics. http://www.myspace.com/yipyip http://www.yip-yip.com

The second half segues into indie-dance/pop territory. The vocals can get annoying after a bit. Just alright. http://www.myspace.com/thebattleroyalemusic http://www.afternoonrecords.com/thebattleroyale
