We sure dig Hyperbubble. The band's music is decidedly Drastic Cinematic - Hyperbubble - Drastic Cinematic (Vinyl with almost everything that's out there and yet That focus being The band's songs might best be described as techno bubblegum This time around the Hyperbubble folks deliver the soundtrack to the film Attack of the Titans. Because these songs were created as a soundtrack they waver a bit from the standard Hyperbubble approach The rhythms are still addictive and those groovy vocals still sound as cool as ever.
So much modern music is way too complex and overblown. That is perhaps why these folks succeed whereas so many fail.
Their music is simple, direct, and instantly lovable, Drastic Cinematic - Hyperbubble - Drastic Cinematic (Vinyl. What we're wondering now is Now that would be something. Early MTV-era pop meets a Casio keyboard with this digital-age duo, a giddy, sci-fi take on Saturday-morning cartoon bubblegum. Retro-techno-bubblegum pop for robots and the kids who love them!
It's happy feel-so-good-lucky joyousness that loves drum machines and microkorgs, like The B's doing New Order Devo on a minimalist scale. It's like robot love machines playing 80's wave to seduce the kids until everyone is dancing in binary.
There are nifty pop blips and rock beeps, and cuteness abounds in a robotic way. It's like The Cars crashing into The Faint and taking them back in time to give them happy pills. Or Freezepop jamming on a version of M's "Pop Muzik" with Ladytron in the back seat of a spaceship, but there's only two of them. It's like that Pulsars song about the Silicon Teens, but it's about Hyperbubbles instead.
The Humans are dead. Inthe machine has become self-aware. Synth-and-keys duo Hyperbubble partially assembles its songs in the proud tradition, passed from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk, of musicians pretending to be robots.
Unlike many of those bands, however, Hyperbubble's Jess and Jeff seem to be in on the joke, taking the android artifice to intentionally over-the-top extremes, then undercutting all the sci-fi hokum with flashes of genuine humanity.
The show was running an hour behind schedule before the preceding band spent 30 minutes sound-checking, but this joke is the only indication he might be getting tired. From the first notes of opener "Mom Dad Unit" onward, he's rocking out with near inhuman speed and efficiency, his hands blurring as he karate chops the synth keys in quick herky-jerks. Though Jeff often runs his vocals through a digitized evil-computer filter, lead-singer-keyboardist Jess's voice is too organic and expressive to be convincingly inhuman.
She pauses every few minutes to strike unnatural vogue poses, but her stage presence is more often fluid and personal, providing a nice contrast to her husband Jeff's mechanical-man shtick. While stone-faced Jeff fist-pumps, Jess wiggles out from behind her keyboard to dance with her back Drastic Cinematic - Hyperbubble - Drastic Cinematic (Vinyl him, or playfully slap him on the Ass-illator And the bit of hope betrayed in their voices when Jess and Jeff duet "we are the ninja kids, too young to die" cause the posturing on "Indoor Kidz" to ring deliberately false.
Then, Jess slumps over at the waist, mimicking a femme-bot, powered down. On its first album, the duo known as Hyperbubble went ahead and proved that the breakneck pace of punk could be applied to straight-up synthpop. In the process, Jess and Jeff who comprise Hyperbubble crafted an addictive little sugarshot that stuck in your head and never, ever threatened to be taken seriously.
Clearly, not much has changed. Still, when the end result is as fun as this, who really needs change anyway? Having demonstrated on their debut that they know how to make peppy synth pop par excellence, Jess and Jeff DeCuir keep at it with their second effort, a dozen delights as dayglo-entertaining as the album artwork. Unlike so much of the almost too-apologetic neo-keyboard-new-wave, the DeCuirs actually sound like they want to hit a dance floor, and one overseen by the self-knowing wryness of Devo at that.
So opening "Synesthesia" is a full-on celebration of their artistic approach, detailing all the pieces of equipment needed to hit the beats and bleeps in traded-off then shared vocals, all with the kind of weird and wonderful nagging synth lines that make listeners of a certain age want to hit the arcade to play Pac-Man or Defender right this second.
The concluding unlisted "Bonus Track" does much the same thing with the very concept of such a song. Jess's delivery is again the kind of witty ice-cool warmth that could almost be a solo cyborg Shangri-Las, while the two create perfectly in sync arrangements of tense and brisk such as "Hyperdome" and the slow-crawling ballad that's the title track. It's no surprise that Jeff in particular has such a sharp eye for sheer froth given his roots in an act like Pink Filth, and song titles like "Rollerboogie Babydoll" and the ultimate mouthful of "Non-Biodegradable Hazardous Waste Disposal" further demonstrate it.
Hyperbubble's Airbrushed Alibis is one of my all-time favorite new wavey releases of I have it on good authority that some of these songs have over layers to them, and you can hear tons of nifty sonic surprises buried in the mix in tracks like "Nervous LP and "I'm In Love With My Clone".
This is headphone music all the way, but if you do listen with conventional speakers, make sure to turn up the volume so you can properly feel that massive bass synth pulse coming through you on "Nervous System" and "Synesthesia". Very nice stuff indeed, New Wave goodness of the highest order. I can think of few other albums in this genre that stayed in my player as long over the summer.
None, in fact. I can't wait to hear what comes next. Hyperbubble's sonic approach is what really brings back the fun in electronic music. You can choose to take it seriously or just drop your music defenses down for a while and just enjoy it for what it is. Upbeat and lighthearted, Hyperbubble manage to bring some pop sensibility into their electronic machinescapes without rendering the final result blatantly mainstream, and it's just so much in-your-face you can't really avoid it.
Most of the songs in "Airbrushed Alibis" are quite short but nonetheless quite complete, they just deliver what they have to while keeping it smart and simple.
Next, there's the ironic, almost sadistic and more wavey "Nervous System", which paves way for "Hyperdome", which is sort of a bridge to what is to come next. And what comes next, may you ask? Well definitely much more intelligent electro powerpop, and "Indoor Kidz" makes a good run for it, keeping it almost innocent and yet somewhat sexy. Oh, wait, let's more. Yes, like a switch, get it?
Hyperbubble are from Texas and consist of Avengers-loving Jess vocals, keyboards and bionics and Jeff sequencers, synthesisers and vocalsthe latter owning up to a Bee Gees lunchbox as most prized possession. That said, the music is not just slung together. This means that no tracks really hang around long enough for you to get bored of them, in and out as quickly as possible I swear that Reversible was considering breaking into the theme from Top Gun as well at one point before deciding better of it.
Hyperbubble are about feeling warm and fuzzy inside, harking back to the likes of Buggles in particular for those who know Living In The Plastic Age LP rather than just the classic singles from it.
Lyrically the duo serve up a mix of futuristic messages along with bubblegum teen life, from the Dilbert-esque Commuter to disco rollerskating tribute Rollerboogie Babydoll. The final nice touch is the bonus track calledwait for it, Bonus Track. I have to say that some may well dismiss this album as forth or cheese, but that is really not giving it a chance.
Sometimes you just have to lighten up and just go with the flow. This album has been on repeat for the last three weeks which is why this review is a little late, trying to work out what I was going to say but too busy just having a blast…. It's always nice when a band immediately delivers on its promises, and the album title says it all, really -- this is very solid pop, derived from a merry never-neverland set somewhere on the cusp of the s.
The title is well chosen, as the album is indeed a rather drastic change from the previous ones and the cinematic bit, explains itself while listening to the record. If you are used to Hyperbubble doing classic upbeat-sugarsweet-synthpop, well, things are not toally different, as the instrumentation doesn't change, but the totally different.
