Art school vocals and pop sensibilities dominate this track. Vocals at times remind me of someone doing the “robot” while talking, but strangely enough it’s very entertaining. And to think all from a very modest setup of a Yamaha QY70 battery powered sequencer and a Mama vocoder, talk about DIY.
Freezepop formed in 1999 in Boston, MA. and their latest album, “Future Future Future Perfect” was just release this September on Recodes — with an upgrade to their modest music studio no less.

Danish singer Ane Trolle sings about the longing of her lover:
“I’ve been thinking too much about you
I’ve been staring at the floor
I’ve listened to all the tunes that I love
They make me feel quite blue
See the sunset with no sleep at all”
Delicious, delicious melancholy…

Found that cover Marsheaux did of Human League’s:

Marsheaux is a duo from Athens, Greece, which reminds me of Goldfrapp / Ladytron. Smooth, glitchy electro with synthpop playfullness is a welcomed find. They recently did a cover version of, “Empire State Human” from Human League as well. Both tracks can be found on their latest album.
