Dead Rider = Son Lux + Chemical Brothers
Imagine a funky psychedelic trip where the ‘70s meet the ‘90s, minus the angst. “Blank Screen” is a perfect description of what this band is about: smooth vocals, experimental electronic sounds and a funky rhythmic beat. This is a clever album on several levels. Although it’s not my cup of tea, I must say it has some fantastic, soulful vocals and took me on an electronic journey into the abstract mind of the artist. This album’s ever-changing rhythms combined with enticing beats have me listening again and again, always hearing something new. If you enjoy sultry electronic indie rock, I recommend you pick up this album and see what electronic journey is in store for you. –Seeth McGavien
