Vinyl LP pressing of this 2007 debut album from Montreal/Chicago trio Letters Letters, a band featuring veteran Electronic music producer Mitchell Akiyama, singer Jenna Robertson and producer/singer Tony Boggs. Turning Electronic music and Post-Rock on it's head, Letters Letters instead decided to look to the early '80s. With broken synthesizers, fizzled-out drum machines and the usual arsenal of guitars and overdriven amplifiers, they managed to figure out a perfect Pop formula. Taking the usual hooks and choruses and feeding them through a mire of grimy effects, they ended up with something flickering and desperately neon-colored. Music for day-glo wrist bands and basement parties, this is a fresh take on the DIY lo-fi scene, and even if the whole fanzine culture has broken down, making way for blogs and webzines, it doesn't mean we have to lose touch with the grittier side of life. Touching on themes as diverse as sex, drugs and the all-important unicorn scene in Blade Runner, there shouldn't be any reason not to usher Letters Letters into your life immediately.
