X-Wife - Side Effects

It may be considered slightly-dated (electro-punk revival was fashionable at least 3 years ago) or ulta-dated (the origins of this movement date back to the early 80's, as documented by the excellent collections "Mutant Disco" and "New York Noise"). But being so-last-season isn't synonym of bad quality. Two years after "Feeding the Machine", Fernando Sousa, Rui Maia and João Vieira (aka DJ Kitten) are back with a new album that just sounds like good music - dated or not, fashionable or not - and is a clear step ahead into a more mature direction. 12 strong and addictive songs to hear from the portuguese "post punk electronic rock power trio".
