The Scientists of Modern Music

TSOMM (for the abbreviation) are a synth bomb, the fallout being incredible tron-pop, beat driven glam-rock fronted by melody making, flesh and blood drones. With deep, rhythmic electric guitar hooks, crispy clean black and white outfits and more vocoders than you can poke an antenna at, these two take their audience on a journey that starts with a ramp and drives through the still clean disco to the fragmenting and decaying sounds of the future.

Expensive Looks

Expensive Looks, the pseudonym for New York-based psych-pop bedroom producer Alec Feld, meld tropical garage breaks, shimmering visceral chants, and disco-edged house to kick back to the displays of natural forces and days of unparalleled euphoric ecstasy. Akin to creations of early garage titans and wonders transfused with codeine-soaked acid jams, the smoothly ethereal yet grimy sounds reveal the inner-workings of towering, crashing polar shifts. http://myspace.com/expensivelooks
