ATOMIC BRIDE: Dead Air: CD

This Seattle five-piece includes dual male and female singers with two guitars, bass, keys, and drums. Dead Air is comprised of ten songs that play out over thirty-eight minutes. The sound seems influenced by surf and garage punk, and emerges reminiscent of the B-52’s. When I was in fifth grade back in the 1980s, I went to a carnival at the college in my hometown and my friends and I had a video made of us pretending we were a band and lip-syncing to “Love Shack.” If I remember correctly, I played the keyboard. It was pretty funny.
