Units – Digital Stimulation
Duel male/female vocal and synth attack backed by some angular drumwork with the seed of Kraftwerk sewn so deep that it barely even manifests itself. Released in San Francisco circa 1980, this album is a much rawer and down to earth precursor to often painfully overproduced and empty genre of “synth-rock” that would dominate in the decade to come. This shit is real; songs about buying burritos and weed in the Mission District, a little Gamelan-informed vibe work, etc. Two follow up albums were recorded (one for a major label) and neither were released. CHECK IT.
