Collette Carter

The New Stroboscopic


Don your platforms and hang that mini disco ball from your rearview with pride as you blast Collette Carter from your little rave friendly car. A sort of ethereal ’70s pop/funk/dance with Sarina Paris-sounding lyrics. Collette Carter is Rod Sledge and girlfriend Wilynda, a long time team that have attacked many musical projects such as Stereo Symphonic and Pacifica, finally settling, for now, with this one. Bringing the best of bedroom friendly electronic infused pop to our stereos, this duo is stewed in cool and garnished with sad lyrics touching on seasons, sex, and making music with your significant other. Interesting and fun, the best songs are the Spring anthem “Tank Tops and Flip Flops” (surprisingly the most sensual track on the whole disc), the sweetly written “Insincere Mix” (“Can I take a picture just as you are cause your eyes look perfect with all the stars and I’d like to remember you before you ever broke a heart”), and the almost hip hop “Fingerprints.” Shake it to some serious grooves with smart lyrics about contemporary subjects sprinkled with some great flavor.
