Datarock – Red; True Stories (Mp3 + Video) and The Blog (Mp3s)

True Stories [mp3]

The Blog [link to an mp3 listen at i guess i'm floating].

I like Datarock.

Norweigan, retrofuturistic, Devo-Heads du jour, the Bergen band, aided by Apple’s iPod Nano spots, has blasted off a bit. They are currently touring their pretty four-some with danceable tunes through Canada, down the coast and back to sister-city, Seattle. Some call them neo-political (The Blog - c’mon, I beg to differ. There’s nothing past observation and regurgitation to be found here) some call them a rip-off (True Stories is lyrically nothing but Talking Heads song titles)…I find them straight forward, enjoyable, benign. There’s really no need to examine possible depth. Datarock’s a bunch of clean guys who put on a multi-lobe-stroking show and lay down beats that keep you moving.

Check out their live performance of True Stories below:

Catch ‘em in a town near you. They’ll be at LA’s El Rey Sept 30.

Buy Datarock’s Red (9/1/09, Nettwerk)
