Smash TV Bits For Breakfast
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Bpitch
Berlin-based duo Holger Zilske and Michael Schmidt make the kind of glitchy, effects-processed noisy drum machine mish-mash that conjures up images of robots line dancing. A sharp, disjointed funk flows through the best of these tracks, like the machine-made splice and dice of "TV Is Talking" and "Luv 4 Luv." Other cuts aren't quite as compelling, due to a grating overuse of sappy elements (the cheesy vocal effects on "Sad" and "Everyone's A Star" are a bit much). Assuming the album title means anything, it will be interesting to see what's for lunch.
