Muscles Guns Babes Lemonade
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Modular
- XLR8R Rating: 9/10
Australia’s Muscles is a one-man dance machine that sounds like he’d bring a stadium-sized party to your basement. Guns Babes Lemonade, his debut for Modular, is overflowing with amazing melodies, hilariously awesome lyrics, airy synths, and enough vocoders to give Chromeo a run for their money. As soon as “Sweaty” opens with its pulsating beat, you’ll be dancing and smirking all the way through to the softer closer, “Hey Muscles I Love You.” Along the way, “My Friend Richard” will shock you with its perfect blend of new wave, house, and ’90s techno, while “Lauren From Glebe” will have you singing along. Combining innovative dance music with wide-eyed optimism and goofy lyrics, Guns Babes Lemonade is pure good times.
