welcome to my other voice
As you’re prepping for another evening out on the town, or perhaps just looking forward to a night at home with three cats, a talk box, and your favorite pipe and slippers, toss on this super gangster cut from Sparks, the aberrant avant-disco pop duo out of
Admittedly, we’re not terribly familiar with the band’s body of work, nor particularly impressed by their steez, but this one sufficiently intrigues us. In what feels like a five-minute time warp, the brothers Sparks pack quite a bit in just a wink: splashy reverse cymbals, robotronix vox (an effect that recalls Peter Frampton and Daft Punk, and many in between), eastern-themed Rickenbackers, campy choruses, and an unstoppable bass line, all tightly wrapped in an ethereal landscape cultivated by Giorgio Moroder's visionary production. Give it a whirl, regardless of what’s up in that scene.
