Released: Jun 2006
Label: Warner Bros.
Quality new wave '80s pop is back, and Head Automatica are here to interpret it for you. With vocals that are pure Elvis Costello and melodies that would not shame Squeeze at their best, this is less retro and more homage. In 1985, this album would have been hailed a winner, and there's no reason to be any less effusive in 2006. This is music for convertibles -- summer sounds for young fresh things as well as the rest of us.
