while i am having a hard time finding good new artists to post about, those wonderful people from valerie always seem to be able to track them down. one of their latest finds is tesla boy from moscow, russia and i can't remember the last time i have been that hooked on a bunch of tracks. tesla boy perfectly combine the vibe of my favorite eighties pop songs with the sounds of today, thus being catchy as hell and easily accessible for everyone.
both 'spirit of the night' and 'electric lady' will probably be on repeat wherever i go for the next couple of weeks. both are from a limited edition ep that tesla boy released earlier this year and while our friends at valerie call these tracks 'simple but well produced', i think that's a bit of an understatement. to me, tesla boy combine top-notch production with great pop appeal. and as i've only got radio and a tape deck in my car, i wish music like theirs would finally make it to mainstream radio.
head over to the marvellous valerie for another stellar jam from tesla boy and make sure to show tesla boy some myspace love!
