Danse Macabre

FAINT, THE "Danse Macabre" (Saddle Creek) cd 13.98
Holy Duran Duran! I Am VSS-bender! What if Ladytron were all guys and into Talk Talk instead of drawing 'inspiration' from Kraftwerk? Yes folks, it's kinda like that. Song-oriented new wave that sounds like the '80s actually happened! Vocoded vocals, disco beats, sequenced bass lines. The Faint are from Omaha, Nebraska, are quite good, and their suburban midwest influences should take them quite a ways-that is, they're not too challenging for most AQ customers, but 'different' enough to be interesting for 'most' people... there's some very good music on 'Danse Macabre' (cheesy title though). Songs to make you dance. "Your Retro Career Melted" has a damn catchy chorus. Well worth checkin' out. Daft Punk/Orgy fans, if they only knew.
