We need an enigma device!

Another pleasentry has just made its way through the mailslot of my door! A niece piece of neo-pop by Codebreaker of Milwaukee. Exiled! as their album is called is a surprisingly nice collection of popgems, drawing from a zillion reference points. Musically it's somewhere between Phoenix, New Order, Yazoo, Hot Chip and American MOR college indie. This album is going to be a smooth part of my summer soundtrack.

Exiled! is the the name of the lead single game. It's funky guitar, handclaps (Handclaps always score highly on the Distortion Disco charts), synths and vocoder. The track is pretty symptomatic of the album - seriously infectious and head bopping.

Second track Are You Ready 2 Love? - A big resounding Yes from here! Any track that paraphrases the bass drum from Blue Monday is always welcome in my home. Aside from that you should note how this song effortlessly mixes a warm disco house sound into a rather fresh sounding new cocktail of insisting basslines and a guitar that James Brown would've been glad to have as a mainstay in his backing band.
