LOLLIGAGS, THE: Out of Perversity Join Hands: CDEP

Mar 03, 2009

This seven-song EP from Athens, Georgia’s The Lolligags is pure synth pop joy reminiscent of Ladytron, or a band I reviewed a few issues back, UV Protection. Female vocals lead the way and are layered throughout the album with danceable beats backing them up. The music isn’t overly cheery; it retains a dark, thick side to it (I can hear Depeche Mode and Joy Division similarities at times) but that doesn’t mean this wouldn’t get you shakin’ your ass. Still, it would be cool to hear them explore some more of that darker synth sound that would piss off the kids on the dance floor.
