Lectrolips - NSA
When I first saw the title, I was thinking about all the controversy in the media lately over all the government meddling in sharing of information over the internet so I assumed the initials were National Security Agency. It took less than 20 seconds to realize I was wrong. This song is fantastic. It's subversive without being sleazy. It makes me want Lectrolips to tour with Liquid Diet. It makes me dance. It makes me move. It's built in incredible levels. If you just close your eyes and let it wash over you, it's a hell of an electro track. It just makes you move. If you listen to the lyrics, it's a bit cheeky and a bit camp. It's expertly crafted, not a note missing or out of place. Ant and Leo have created another brilliant track. It's got a feel of a mixed media project with how the vocals are placed against the spoken portion. I think I hear something new each time I listen to it.
I don't know how popular these guys are in the UK but I want them to be gigantic because they make great music. It's quality work that makes you want to hear more. They have a strong point of view and don't shy away from it. That creates a desire for me to hear more and to want to throw money at them.
