DIGITAL LEATHER: She Had a Cameltoe: 7″

When I lived in Tucson years ago, I would see Shawn (the man behind DL) at shows, looking like a skinny bottle of whiskey that was always filling back up. He seemed unstable and fun, someone you want to hang out with as long as you had a bail bonds card on ya. Well this is how DL is too, er, in digital form. Twisted synth punk. His newest single sounds like the Boggles on the title track: vocals through a TV speaker, really, really electric sounds, more pop-pop-click than his usual vibe. But it’s great and what American wouldn’t like a song about a cameltoe? The back side, “Abrasion” is more along the lines of his other work: moody drama class vocals, strong keyboards, and garage rock drums… homemade damage. It’s a killer song that you can sing along to like a drunk Brian Eno.
