With A Little Bit Of “Whooo!,” I’ll Make You Say “Wow!”

Plastic Operator “Folder” This is an amazingly sweet dance pop single built around a computer reference which doesn’t make total sense to me. I think that the singer has “copied and pasted” a love letter into the object of his affection’s file folder, though it’s not quite clear whether or not they are sharing a computer or if this is the world’s first (to my knowledge, anyway) p2p love song. I get the impression that this might be a Mac thing, so I’m a bit out of the loop. (Click here to buy it from Rough Trade.)

A Gun Called Tension “Gold Front” – Though this may not be the most accurate reference point, my immediate gut-instinct response to this song is “Archers Of Loaf going through an Eno phase.” (Maybe specifically Eno’s production on Achtung Baby? I’m not sure, to be honest. I’m responding to that big droning sweep, which is more U2 than Eno, when I think about what Eno’s own music actually sounds like.) This feels a bit more anthemic and epic every time I hear it; I’m certain that this song must be fantastic when performed live. (Click here to pre-order it from Cold Crush Records.)
