About is a one-man military force, set out to destroy indietronica clichés everywhere. In the vein of Thurston Moore and company, Bongo ranges from jangling, driving guitars and fierce drumming to offbeat, jazzy pop that's got hooks coming from every angle. Far from creating just another electronically infused bedroom-rock record, Germany-based producer Rutger Hoedemaekers has integrated live instrumentation with electronic percussion, recalling the best moments of breakcore against a backdrop of '90s indie-rock romanticism. Cock Rock Disco prez Jason Forrest offers up another solid hit from his eccentric haven for groundbreaking artistry.
