Save the Drama EP
Light FM is a huff of cosmic dust from a planet far, far away. Lead by Josiah Mazzaschi, the crackpot mastermind behind the legendary Chicago unit Motorhome, this hypnotic array of perky zingers are fueled by maddening keyboards and gooey electro-pop that combines for a sizzling salvo like The Cars crashing a surprise party for Devo. Light FM's sparkly new EP Save The Drama is the quintessential fuse of 80's synth-pop, disassembled and rearranged in the 2007 digital age with all of the glamour and celebrity of the smoking hot stars in Los Angeles as it's supernatural backdrop. Mazzaschi's handsome vocals reach an altitude of heavenly falsettos that only a Sherpa in the Himalayan Mountains could ascend to. With a tackle box of audio accessories ranging from the bleeps of vintage Atari 2600 games, TalkBoys or any eclectro gizmo dug up from grandpa's dusty attic, sonically enhance this 'buzz band' according to the LA Times, who are desperately in search of landing their rocket ship on the roof of an intelligent label to breed a new species of machine-pop tarts for future millenniums. - Jason Anfinson - The Tripwire.com.
