Viva el Hot Fuss

I recently picked up a copy of Hot Fuss by The Killers. To my synth-pop biased ears, it is truly excellent.

The gem of Relentless, of Very/Relentless fame, for those who didn't know what I was talking about from the title of the post. Actually, the rest might be good, but I haven't really listened to them save for "Forever In Love" which doesn't count because I already had the version with vocals from the "Very" Extra Listening disc.

TMBG should only do synthpop

I hadn't picked up any TMBG non-collection albums or EPs for several years, but now I have a copy of the Indestructible Object EP. "Am I Awake?" is a thoroughly excellent piece of synthpop. If I knew the fancy words that one uses to decompose a song into its various themes and movements, I would use them to great effect at approximately this portion of the paragraph. But I don't. Very good track though.

New Order Spinoffs

I highly recommend Monaco and The Other Two to anyone who likes New Order, and perhaps Electronic as well.

It's a song from 1984. Get with the program.
