    This is the debut album from Ladytron with the minimalist title "604". This is undoubtedly the best UK electro-pop band of the moment. They originate from Liverpool, but one of the female singers is from Bulgaria. The music is a potent and nostalgic mix of Add-N-to-X, Stereolab, St. Etienne, Human League and Kraftwerk. My favourites are "Another Breakfast with You" which smells of This is the debut album from Ladytron with the minimalist title "604". This is undoubtedly the best UK electro-pop band of the moment.

  1. Though the steaming electro missives of 604 can sound a bit uniform at times, Ladytron's buzzing bin of automaton female vocals and retro machine accompaniment intoxicates with illicit ease.
  2. Ladytron slide perfectly vacuum-moulded from the Kraftwerk production line, a brand new model of synthesised splendour, power songwriting, and industrial dance shudderings. 'He Took Her To A Movie', 'The Way That I Found You' and 'Jet Age' capture the exotic Teutonic soul of 'Don't You Want Me' or 'The Model' while sounding thrillingly modern.
  3. Ladytron's most interesting aspect is their mix of retro songwriting with distinctly modern themes.
