Detroit punks hone their ample strengths on a third album that's pure rock 'n' roll
Album Review: Wave Machines - 'Wave If You're Really There'
Men in masks with subtle pop suss
a gorgeous grower of a debut, a veritable Aladdin’s cave of sounds and subject matter. Songs are inspired by everything from glow-in-the-dark ghost calendars to Cyndi Lauper and, um, overplayed Queen anthems. But it’s precisely this combination of clever, unconventional lyrics and shimmering synths, falsetto vocals and disco bass that makes this album so alluring. Wave Machines could look like mutant zombie spawn and NME would still go weak at the knees for them.
