Felix Da Housecat Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever
- Words: Tyra Bangs
- Label: Emperor Norton
Felix Da Housecat has made many fine house tracks in his time, but his new album under the Devin Dazzle alias-with its soulless synths, gay club-reject vocals, and sewn-together melodies-personifies everything that's old and dead about electro-pop. Chief offenders "Everyone is Someone in L.A." and "Short Skirts" (with lyrics like "sneaking in peep shows/stealing poppers and dildos") are the soundtrack to someone so high on their own fame that they've lost even the will to create a clever hook. Comfortably numb and uncomfortably dumb.
