While of lot of tunes reviewed on Perfect Porridge reflect our love of indie rock, we will readily admit our secret love of industrial music. Lucky us to have the new Thosquanta disc arrive in the kitchen this week.
Minneapolis’ Adam Powell has grown his late-90s dorm room project into the four member Thosquanta (pronounce it correctly, and win a badly scratched record), and we like what we hear.
Lovelife’s mix of grumbling, darkwave lyrics interspersed with Jen Plum’s female panache, gothy metal synth and industrial beats yield a refreshing mix of straight-up electronica and electrowave you can dance, sing or cry along with. We’ll leave the choice up to you, but the smoking hot vocalist not only in the band but posing topless on the cover is more than influencing our decision.
RIYL: KMFDM Gravity Kills, The Sneaker Pimps, remixed Rob Zombie
