The Joup Friday Album: Midnight Juggernauts – Dystopia

midnightjuggernautsA triumphant blend of electronic pop, new wave, and disco, Australian synth-maestros Midnight Juggernauts’ 2008 debut album Dystopia plays out like the end product of Daft Punk travelling back in time 30 years in a Delorean to produce a dance record for David Bowie. Drums and bass thump. Synthesizers pulse and swirl. Booties shake. I don’t know what’s been in the water down in the outback the last several years, but the local synth enthusiasts have sounded the battle cry, the denizens of analog electronics raising their keyboards and arpeggiators high into the sky for the whole world to see. The results have been fun as hell, and it all started (for me at least) with Midnight Juggernauts.

I could probably prattle on and on about revivalist disco, the beautiful rhythmic sounds of the past future, or a music scene that should, by all logic, culminate with the return of the roller rink as THE social hotspot, but rather, I’ll just let the album speak for itself.

As per usual, get your shaking booties online (or better yet, to an actual brick and mortar store) and buy the record if you dig it.

    The difference in result’s not just happenstance; it ttakes place because from the
    attitude, concept, and administration in thee
    entire project. This is juswt part from the information needed for creating
    a new church from scratch. Another area that Constantine could possibly have
    provided influence inside church coukd be the organization off the church.
