Faking The Books by Lali Puna
Released: Apr 2004
Label: Morr Music
Plenty of groups attempt a similar amalgam of indie rock and electronics, but Munich's Lali Puna always manage to stand out, thanks in part to strong melodic and harmonic sensibilities and to their impeccable balance of synthesizers, glitched samples, guitars and vocals. They've got range, too: The title track compares to the Postal Service's intricate intimacy, while "Call 1-800-Fear" summons Stereolab's buzzing, hurtling impulse. Their roots in Berlin's "living-room scene" are evident; this stuff is as cozy as a well-worn sofa.
