MASTER CONTROL: self-titled: CD

A self-described “combination of old-school hip hop aesthetic, classic rock (which I personally hear zilch of, thankfully), and new wave blended with the methods of modern electronic production.” What that translates to is bass drum-driven new wave that would be thoroughly boring were it not for the use of robot voices throughout the entire disc. Don’t quite get the whole “fall of American culture” stuff, but the robot voices sure are cool. I’m a total sucker for robot voices.
