Freezepop – Harebrained Scheme

11 11 2007

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.
