Walter Meego "Voyager"

May 13, 2008

成員現在分別是Justin Sconza and Colin Yarck的芝加哥兩人組Walter Meego,將在5月27號美國發行他們的首專輯Voyager,在這要非常感謝美國SONYBMG提供的全專輯下載讓我能夠搶先聽到,Walter Meego的音樂還蠻有澳洲Label Modular的感覺,所以這對於喜歡The PresetsCut CopyVan SheMidnight JuggernautsChromeo的人來說應該也會想要來一下,在Walter Meego的專輯Voyager發行前,從5月20號開始到6月6號他們在全美會有12場演出跟The Presets一起,雖然在信中美國SONYBMG的人有提到說要給我票去看他們的Live並且還可採訪他們,但實在不確定他們知不知道我不在美國當地,難不成可以要求他們幫我出一下機票嗎?XD

Walter Meego - Girls [Download]

Walter Meego is not a dude, but a duo. Justin Sconza and Colin Yarck, the heart and soul (respectively) of Walter Meego, are two rare suburban white boys who intuitively understand the subliminal power of synthy, salacious bass. Effervescent pop is Walter Meego’s specialty, and it flies out of speakers like a Pegasus riding a cheetah. The duo’s debut album, Voyager, is set for a May 27 release on the Almost Gold Recordings label.

Vocalist Justin Sconza has a voice that floats in and out of sounding like a mixture between Riff Raff from Rocky Horror Picture Show and a helium-sucking John Lennon. His voice is ear-pricking and ultimately exhilarating. Band backbone Colin Yarck is a knob-manipulating marvel.

Voyager is imbued with a cohesive appeal that belies most of the quirky, blippy, themey beat-driven albums of today. Album opener “Forever” channels The Cars and Nu Shooz (what??); “Wanna Be a Star” gives Underworld a wedgie; “Through a Keyhole” exhorts voyeurism, noir piano sounds, and paranoia; “Lost” punches fellow Chicagoan Green Velvet in the face.
