Damn, I wish my parents HAD gotten me a Casio keyboard when I repeatedly asked for one growing up: then I could have written cool shit like this.
Alpinestars are the Mancunian duo of Glyn Thomas and Richard Woolgar and they make a mighty tasty synth-pop
beat-extravaganza sonic stew, hold the cheese. Slightly vocoded voices, futuristic synth lines and icy electronica evoke thoughts of how
Kraftwerk must have thought music in 2001: A Space Odyssey was REALLY going to sound. With the recent resurgence of '80s synth
acts, Alpinestars fit in without ever having to try, as it should be with something this effortlessly cool. Alpine cool, even.
