Wiggin’ out at the Love Motel

Got an email from Love Motel, pointing me in the direction of their Myspace, urging me to check out some tunes. Checked them out, and liked what I heard, so here’s a little blog post to share the wealth with the rest of you. You can also check out the Remix Project here

A bit from their page:

“Three years after his critically acclaimed debut album Après le paradis, Geneva based composer Love Motel is back on the scene with Mind the Void. Invoking a full suite of portraits, Love Motel describes « his » 21st century through the eyes of a bunch of lost souls (wasted nerds, repentant machos, TV addicts, sadistic gigolos, former dictators and naughty astronauts) looking for salvation. And while the portraits that he paints aren’t that pretty, his sexy musical performance as well as his dark and ironic lyrics transform Mind the Void into an hypnotizing, beautiful and menacing soundtrack of now.

Mind the Void offers the same rich intensity as Love Motel’s former album, but meted out through a more mature and more cohesive sound that immediately grabs your attention. Andres Garcia’s skilful production keeps the tension bubbling just below the surface mixing glam rock guitars, booty basses and robotic rhythms bringing back something from the 80s, although contemporary textures always lurk beneath the surface of Mind the Void.”

They’ve sorted us out with a full track and some exclusives remixes for you to all enjoy:
