We're hybridizing traditions right at the end of 2022, as we combine our customary off-topic episode of We Have A Technical and our monthly commentary episodes. We asked our Patreons what sort of non-scene related album they'd like us to discuss, and with pop music making a late run from behind to beat out metal and hip-hop, we're talking about the 2009 debut from UK electropop artist Little Boots. Hands was in constant rotation in the Senior Staff's headphones in 2009 (and occasional club sets) as they sought escape from the then-depleted landscape of club industrial releases, and revisiting its blend of electropop and synthpop (as well as more nebulous contemporary tags like nu-rave and bloghouse) was a real treat. We hope you'll enjoy this detour from I Die: You Die's usual beat as we close out the year.
