DAT Politics Go Pets Go
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Chicks on Speed
DAT Politics is laudable for emphasizing the violent delirium and naked psychedelia of cartoon music. It's nearly miraculous that such sounds-schizophrenically bouncing between genres and damning even five-second attention spans-became our childhood babysitters. On Go Pets Go, the DAT politicians continue to shove Rugrats synth melodies, toy drum beats and time-stretched vocals into a DSP blender, but sans the tinnitus-licking high frequencies and bloody chipmunk squabbles. The result is fine toon pop on par with the I"magination Land" song from The Muppet Babies or John Zorn's Cynical Hysterie Hour soundtrack. However, this music might make tykes cry.
