This is some really crazy shit that I downloaded about 6 weeks ago but just got around to listening to it. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything quite as weird as this for quite sometime, well not since the B52’s & Devo!
BUT I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!!…
This is what the PRESS RELEASE SAYS:
“People’s minds have been melting to their “first world techno-pop from the future.” Boasting 17 power packed dance tracks and one surreal lullaby, this phenomenal Sweet Snacks release follows in the traditions of some of the greatest bands on Earth, all the while forging through the uncharted territory of the future.
Born out of the unlikely meeting between three musical genies (MC Twinkie, MC Ladyfinger, MC Bon Bon), the new Sweet Snacks album features several collaborative efforts with modern pop superstars. 80’s hit maker of “Whip it” fame, Jerry Casale of DEVO, is featured on their controversial dance track “Illuminati” as well as on their lushly orchestrated homage to nanotechnology, “Nano a Nano.” The darling cosmic gem of a track, “UFO”, features the young bluegrass sensations, Hot Buttered Rum in a riveting encounter of the third kind.
The album’s themes range from cosmonauts to ping pong champions, from the halls of secret society to kung pow chicken in your face. The themes are brilliantly brought to life not only musically but also lyrically. The content is darkly humorous yet strangely enlightening. This all original project blends synthetic and analogue soundscapes into the destined subconscious terrain of the candy coated lollipop future.”
