JAPANESE POPSTARS/Controlling Your Allegiance: Available NOW!

2011 release from the Electronic trio. In the two years since their debut album, We Just Are, dropped, they've toured The States, Australia, Europe and, of course Japan. But it's Controlling Your Allegiance that's the real leap forward, not least because they've used vocalists for the first time. And not just any old session singers either. First single, 'Destroy', featured an idiosyncratic and eerily compelling vocal from Jon Spencer (of Blues Explosion fame) set atop a squelching, brooding slab of nu-electro that climaxes in an unholy riot of angry synths. Decky from the Japstars had the idea of enlisting The Cure's Robert Smith for one of the rough edits.
