The Polyamorous Affair Bolshevik Disco

Inspired by a Russian nightclub where partygoers’ faces were tested before getting inside, Bolshevik Disco offers a fantastic vision of nightclubbing in the spirit of Giorgio Moroder and Eno-era David Bowie. The duo of Eddie Chacon and Sissy St. Marie bring a theatrical brand of Italo-style electro-disco via their minimal production and St. Marie's breathy vocals, most effectively on album highlight “White Hot Magic” and the Ladytron-esque “Face Control.” Although the song selection occasionally falters, especially on the misguided interpretation of Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love," Bolshevik Disco manages to transport listeners to the half-lit glory of the Soviet dancefloor it looks to conjure, if only for a few fleeting minutes.
