industrial_asset_rcb150ne because that song just sums up how sad it is that the only game in town was blowing hitler's buddies for the occult. sometimes you have to root the devil to get a bed to sleep in . Favorite track: Otto Rahn.

hcdr A strangely ecstatic snog album. Some great tracks, and love some of the backing vocals on this album, especially Otto Rahn, and Corp Cyclists. While you are enjoying the toons, just try and look away from Chris Woods mesmerizing post-apocalyptic Valkyrie warriors. Yowsers! Favorite track: The Corporate Homoerotic Cyclists.

about

Babes in Consumerland is the new Snog album.

It is also the best album the band has ever recorded.

Coming a full 21 years after their debut left-field dancefloor hit “Corporate Slave”, Babes in Consumerland sees the band in transition as never before. Though not mentioned explicitly lyrically, band mastermind Dee Thrussell’s long journey to recently arrive as a transgender woman informs every musical gesture and plaintive lyric. Still possessed of a striking social conscience and the blackest of humours, “Everything Is Under Control” exclaims a reverie around social conditioning over a hefty shuffle. “Bleak Is My Favourite Chic” chronicles a troubled internal landscape over pogo beat, fuzz-punk bass and squealing analogue synths. Timely and provocative, “Apocalypse Fatigue” pleads for an end, as an EMS VCS3 chirps and a Fairlight CMI choir purrs.

Joined by dear friends and collaborators Atom TM, Felix Kubin, Ash Wednesday, John Justin Stewart (Grace Jones) and The City Of Prague Philharmonic Choir, this is electronic music as you’ve never heard it before - blindingly articulate, fearless and yet strangely accessible.

2013’s incarnation of the legendary Snog is a now an all-female act, a powerhouse trio delivering slyly subversive electronic pop.

You have been warned.
