[Mixel Pixel]
"Bound to be together one day. Bound to breathe together one day. Gotta get in to the new flow of body automatic."

Taking a page from the Eastern Stars [post], Mixel Pixel incorporates the great dynamics of boy/girl vocals into a dizzying set of electro pop. Surprised at all by that influence? You really ought not to be. Seemingly never short of affiliations, Rob Corradetti and Kaia Wong of the Eastern Stars also happen to make up half of the likes of Mixel Pixel, and while the two projects share a similarity in sound with two-sided vocals, they really don't have much else in common. Mixel Pixel sets up busy sets of layers and contrasts it all to an overall simple beat. Mixel Pixel's tunage really comes to surround you. While music tends to just get by, there's an honest depth in Mixel Pixel's sound. If you resist getting sucked in, it'll be quick to set up around you and force you into it. For something that's a bit of rock and Atari, look to Mixel Pixel...

Various Songs from Mixel Pixel (all songs are right click - save as):
Body Automatic

Mixel Pixel's generous enough to set you up with more tracks at their site.
Be their friend!

Otherwheres - Nathaniel over at IGIF thought it'd be great to rub in the fact that he's been released for summer. Head on over and pick up Alice Cooper's anthem for release...

I've been loving "You're the kind of Girl" for some time. Nice to see them on your radar.

anon I - My bandwidth was exceeded for a while, but it should be up by now.

anon II - Haha, I've got two weeks myself and it's torture...

mr. kimberly - I was definitely surprised while learning more about them to see they haven't been blogged about as much as I thought they would, so it's great to put 'em on radar.

ben - Not Atari enough, eh? I've got a mix coming up that might help that...

ricky & anon - Thanks for the kind words...
