I Am Electric = These Arms are Snakes + Rye Coalition

 

Featuring former members of Form of Rocket and Pushing up Daisies, I Am Electric is like a dance-oriented Rye Coalition. The prickly guitar parts that sashay over you in all directions, not unlike New Transit’s, backed by a strong rock spine, might be more melancholy than Rye Coalition’s, but the vocal styles mixed with that guitar are definitely reminiscent. Poetry that’s not obnoxious—a major accomplishment—pervades: song titles include “Becoming a Moth,” “Emperor Lloyd Moffat is Alive” and “Vulpes Vulpes.”
