Members: JAMIE STAR
Extreme fuzz and synthy textures throb over pulsy back beats. A cluster of fog spills in bright colors with a strong vocal presence to awaken the melodramatic overtones that mist through the way out effects. Finally, we have a nice new wave production that welcomes you to the wonderful realm of video game sounds. Jamie Stars Storyland is tight and the melodies move perfectly, while it has pleasantly surprising twists which make the songs very listenable. Short but sweet electronic hooks buzz unique, dirty, nasty distortions and pummelling basslines. Good dark, dancy indie rock mixed with electro rave pop, but still manages to stay within its own dynamics. I'm telling you, aliens have landed and they're doing strange things to what were once harmless musical instruments. If we ever come back out from behind our sofa and listen, we may learn how music can be fascinating and innovative even with our primitive technology. Luckily, the vocals are distinctive enough to grab ones attention away from the burbling heavy bass lines and the eerie Martian death ray synth washing over the top.
