|||||Shiny Toy Guns - We Are Pilots||]|
In the interest of spreading the word, the Shiny Toy Guns song "Le Disko" that's been causing a buzz lately is a bait-and-switch compared to the rest of We Are Pilots. The album as a whole sounds more like Yanni than a pissed off Miss Kittin. Whiny, moogtastical emo shit. The video for the title track should have sunny open fields, ballerinas, and the lead singer getting shot in the teeth with a real shiny gun. What a ripoff, the fucking Justin Timberlake album is more electroclash than this. Fuck, I was really hoping that there would be a musical movement of electroclash with balls. Dammit dammit sonofabitch.
On that note, I'd like to propose a supergroup. Timbaland and Statik (Collide) on synths/programming, Charles Hunt (Hate Dept) on live drums, Gabriel Shaw (mindFIELD/Chemlab) on guitar, Fran Falls (God Lives Underwater) on bass, and Kelli Dayton (Sneaker Pimps)/Anna Christine (Luxt) as co-lead vocalists. How ya like them apples, Ladytron? Dirty, filthy rock music with a syncopated, cybernetic edge luring you in to it's van to tear you a new one. That's bringing sexy back.
