Glass Candy Demos

Glass Candy Demos
Glass Candy are a little bit of an obsession right now. This year’s breathtaking After Dark compilation on Italians Do It Better (an imprint of Troubleman Unlimited) really spotlighted the band’s extreme makeover. It seemed like overnight they went from pretentious no wave hipsters to sexy Italo Disco sophisticates. Led by the breath of the stunning Ida No, producer Johnny Jewel has ditched the grating noise of 2003’s Love Love Love for something much more sensual: lush ’70s Italian soundtracks for the ’80s discotheque. This is love making music for dudes who wear neck bandanas and the gals who love them. The best part is that while Ida and Johnny work on their long-awaited follow-up album, they’re posting free demos to download on their MySpace page: "Candy Castle” is a seductive yet listless jam, like Jellybean’s early Madonna work on Quaaludes, while "Geto Boys” emits a summertime glee with its gorgeous mash-up of last year’s "Iko Iko” single and Geto Boys’ "My Mind Playing Tricks On Me.” The site reads: "Could Glass Candy possibly have one of the top albums of the first decade of the still new millenium. I think so. 2008 Revolution.” I don’t think I can argue with them.

P.S. Don’t miss out on Chromatics either.
