GEARWIRE REVIEW OF AIRBRUSHED ALIBIS


HYPERBUBBLE AIRBRUSHED ALIBIS CD

Hyperbubble
Airbrushed Albis
Filthy Little Angels Records


Hyperbubble's Airbrushed Alibis is one of my all-time favorite new wavey releases of 2007. I have it on good authority that some of these songs have over 100 layers to them, and you can hear tons of nifty sonic surprises buried in the mix in tracks like "Nervous System" and "I'm In Love With My Clone".

This is headphone music all the way, but if you do listen with conventional speakers, make sure to turn up the volume so you can properly feel that massive bass synth pulse coming through you on "Nervous System" and "Synesthesia". Very nice stuff indeed, New Wave goodness of the highest order.

I can think of few other albums in this genre that stayed in my player as long over the summer. None, in fact. You can not go wrong with Hyperbubble as a Blondie fan, Devo lover, Ladytron junkie, or even Dee-Lite groove addict. I can't wait to hear what comes next.
