Lost in Ladytron
Today is guest-feature day! Having brought my attention to alot of other really kool bands, Bjorn (Birthday boy of yesterday) has for a long time preached the blessings of Ladytron, so I decided to have him do a guest post:

Slow, dark and heavy synthesizers coupled with enigmatic and beautiful tunes always makes me imagine myself travelling fast and alone at night through dark, but pleasant urbane settlements.
This is Ladytron. Not that they are pure melancholy, but the music seems to carry this dark and bulky quality. I love that. It is like winter combined with that bar-scene from Lost in Translation.

Now my love has gone through three albums - the latest being 'Witching hour' from 2005 which has put me on that magical, nightly, inner city train over and over again. I guess the four piece from Liverpool have found a new rail to fulfilment that does not require light or heaven. Very modern, very human, very persuassive.

So wrap a blanket around you and let the seductive darkness surround you.
(I imagine this being the way Darth Vader was seduced in the first place.)
