Teledrome: S/T 12"
Debut LP from this synth-pop band out of Calgary, Canada. I can see this being a bit too sugary sweet for some, but I love it... the synths are loud, melodic, and right up front in the mix. It actually kind of reminds me if you took the basic sound of the Lost Sounds (i.e. both heavy synths and heavy guitars), combined it with the pop prowess of Jay Reatard's solo stuff (the vocalist actually has really similar inflection to Jay) and then added in a touch of total 80s, John Hughes movie soundtrack throwback. Totally killer.
