Published Apr 06, 2005Anyone seeking a cure for the blues of Daft Punks shockingly substandard third album should find it in this Seattle-based act. A full seven-piece band that create music most often heard by the likes of two European DJs, United State of Electronica nick the best bits of the genre to build a top-notch dance party. The best thing about "Emerald City is its nobility in bringing back the vocoder. Equal parts Junior Senior, Daft Punks "Digital Love and even Eiffel 65s "Blue, the tune proves that United State of Electronica is a shamelessly fun band with enough indie cred and carefree enthusiasm to wipe away those suspicions of the 90s-era Euro disco acts who once ruled the charts.
