- Actually by La Big Vic
A very '70s influenced sleeve with the band name spelled out in steam, a series of tunnels and a large tongue protruding. An odd hotchpotch of Brooklyn based musicians (one of them was in a Japanese boy band), they produce a Kraut-ish blend of analogue synth, hums and squeaks that is hugely accessible. I can imagine the vocoder-ed hook of "I Love You" on the opening 'LYNY' turning up on an advert somewhere. They remind me simultaneously of The United States of America, Deerhoof, Can, The Boredoms and Roxy Music. The vocals are high-pitched, eastern influenced, both male and female, their sound is big and bold with huge synths. Sometimes it sounds like the kind of music MGMT wish they could make, at others it sounds like Vangelis collaborating with Panda Bear. Odd, beguiling and occasionally quite beautiful indeed.
