9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 14 April 2011
Printed Circuit!! We've missed you here at Norman towers! God bless you and your uplifting posi style chip tunes! It's been a while since the amazing 'The Sound Of The Wonderful Technique' hit my CD player for the first time so it's a pleasure to see another LP has finally materialised. Combining her love of nerdy sequence based electronica and modern high end studio pop singles (you know... like what Britney Spears makes) has made for some fantastic tracks over the years and with 'Chip Pop' you get the feeling that P.C's style has finally settled, becoming tastefully refined. You'll be pleased to know that 'Chip Pop' crams in the hits. Obvious single choices like 'Brick It' and 'Sexy Troble' pay homage to the pioneers of true electronic pop with The Human League and Pet Shop Boys springing to the fore-front of my mind. Then you've got the late night dance floor fillers and local favourites in the form of 'Science Stick' (probably my fave Circuit tune and easily the most uplifting) and 'My Butt Hurts' (check out the online vid if you wanna learn the Bucks Fizz-esque dance routine). We are also treated to Circuit remixes of Oakland's experimental melodic punkers KIT (remix of 'Rain') and leeds douche pop regulars COWTOWN (an improvement on COWTOWN's homage to powerful footwear 'Powerblingers') both of which are dealt with with appropriate affection by Ms. Circuit. Forget this weeks trail of dirgy ambient losers and record store day suck up's and get yourself a proper good LP. Comes on sexy blue vinyl w/ a free download code. Also worth checking out the legoland video for 'Brick It' and the awesome new website. SO CIRCUIT CREW!
