Seksu Roba

Pleasure Vibrations

eenie meenie

Swirling around like a used satellite at a party, Seksu Roba is electronica dance-pop of impressive skill with Sukho Lee behind the recording console and Lun*na Menoh center stage on the mike. Tracks like “Afternoon Rendez Vous” and “Fantasy” use Mini-Moog and other technology to get us to look to the stars while the groove gets us off–so to speak–to a much better start.

To say that “Telephone” is Kraftwerk-inspired isn’t saying anything new, there’s almost no electronic music of the past 20 years, at least, that isn’t. But “Heavenly Bodies” sounds like Hall & Oates minus the graceful melodies, plus industrial beats with an element of hip-hop by way of Information Society and glowing synths by Human League.

If that’s the sort of comparison that gets your mind crackling – I know it would mine – Pleasure Vibrations is designed for you. And I didn’t even mention the Theremin.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
