Intro To Epilogue

So, I'm still kinda on an electro kick, and having nearly exhausted my current supply I was craving some new stuff. that's when I checked my e-mails and saw this: The latest release from a group called Galactaron; an electro group with a Drexciya-esque backstory - a group of aliens on their first visit to earth. To make music with their new human friend Emily Wong of course.

The track they linked me is pretty sweet, avoiding cliche electro elements and dabbling in vocoders (which for me is ALWAYS a bonus). It also has a fairly unique twist in that every word in the lyrics is in a different language, ranging from Afrikaans to Russian, while this idea sounds a bit sketchy on paper, the end result actually sounds really good, almost comparable to some tracks from Squarepusher's Shobaleader One: d'Demonstrator. (you can download it from their soundcloud, I can't upload it at the minute as I'm on a borrowed laptop)
