Synth gloomers Cabaret Voltaire originally released the delightfully titled Micro-Phonies in 1984, taking us down the pop route with a record of unapologetic hits -- hey art, you've gotta make money sometimes. No matter: the record delivers on its catchy intent, "Sensoria" features, and the band flies high.

Perhaps Cab Volt's best all-around work. Certainly, it's one of their more accessible sonic assaults. From the sampledelic politics of "Do Right" to the cyber-paranoia of "Spies in the Wires," Micro-Phonies is packed with wall-to-wall sound bytes about life in the post-modern age. This is the soundtrack you'll here as lovers screw in the radioactive sludge of global meltdown. Industrial music at its finest. Highlights of the album include 'Do Right', 'Sensoria' and the funky horn-driven 'James Brown'.
