RIYL: The Rapture, Death From Above 1979, Ghostland Observatory

Label: Saddle Creek

Before, during and after the ‘electro rock’ boom of the early aughts, there was The Faint.¬† Nebraska’s finest synth punks have been at it since the mid 90s, churning out¬†bonafide classics of the genre like 1999’s Blank-Wave Arcade and 2001’s Danse Macabre.¬† Now on their seventh album, The Faint are back with old friends Saddle Creek for the first time since 2005.¬† That makes me feel good inside.

First single Child Asleep picks right up where the group left off, incorporating their signature combo of frantic synth loops¬†and¬†driving rhythms.¬† Vocalist Todd Fink can still bring the heat too.¬† It’s hard to believe the dude is almost 45 years old.¬† Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album!¬† Saddle Creek only has 300 copies of Egowerk on red vinyl, so I doubt they’ll stick around for long.¬† Grab one after the ‘buy’ link.
