Teledetente 666 – “Teledetente 666” – [Sweet Rot Records]

Sweet Rot has been rummaging through the French underground and has put out Teledetente 666’s debut 7” LP. This is some gritty, mid-tempo drum machine punk, soaked in fuzz drenched riffage. The drum machine is a little unfortunate if you ask me, but hey, Big Black used a drum machine too (though this sounds nothing like BB so don’t get the wrong idea..), and all computerized percussion aside, this LP certainly stands its ground. This has a staticy, bedroom hot-boxed with cigarette smoke kind of feel. The grooves here are infectious and the vocals sung in french make for some sex appeal. Side A is my pick, but ends super abruptly, so watch out! Side B echoes of the 80s with more of a dirty synthy sort of sound. You could eat a handful vicodin and sway to this. -Surfer Rosa
