PLASMIC Interview

Hailing from Orange County, PLASMIC describes herself as “your abused Barbie doll from childhood”. Detonating infectious lo-fi synth bombs while full of femme rage fuelled by childhood anxiety, a hybrid of CRYSTAL CASTLES, DEVO, MINISTRY and DIVINE forms various parts of her artistic DNA. Her recent appearance at TEC005 showcased her as a feisty live performer. While she was in London, PLASMIC chatted about her music and independently minded ethos. Continue Reading ›

TEC005 featuring ARTHUR & MARTHA, PLASMIC + RAINLAND

Happy Robots Records and The Electricity Club joined forces for TEC005 to present the reunion of ARTHUR & MARTHA to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘Navigation’, their only album to date.

ARTHUR & MARTHA’s blend of electronica was branded ‘cutie krautrock’ or ‘tweetronica’ – they used using toy and playground electronic gizmos, battered old synth and cheapo drum machines to create gentle, tinny yet poignant pulsebeats that propel their achingly pretty, minor-chord melodies.

The Electricity Club’s 30 SONGS OF 2018

2018 was a year of good songs rather than good albums, with many of long players not as consistent or as of high a standard as the bumper crop from the Class of ’17.

So with a restriction of one song per artist moniker, here are The Electricity Club’s 30 SONGS OF 2018 presented in alphabetical order… Continue Reading ›
