Delicous Videogame Bleeps and Techno Beats
PINE*AM @ The Makeout Room 5/24/05

If you can imagine what vintage synthesizer gods Kraftwerk would sound like if they were transformed into three cute Japanese girls who made 8-bit Nintendo influenced retro-click-pop gems of pure, undiluted bliss... then you can understand why the Isotope is head over heels about PINE*AM. Chances are if you've walked in the front door of the Isotope for the past month you've heard the staff talking amongst ourselves about our industrial strength love for PINE*AM, or you've heard us spinning our preview copy of their soon-to-be-released "Pull The Rabbit Ears" album on a near endless loop.

Hailing from Osaka, Japan, the alternate-dimentional Devos of PINE*AM take swirling sonic landscapes, android drum loops, low frequency bass, old school synthesizer bleeps, catch-laden guitar hooks, and airy three-part harmonies to create digital music bubbles of irresistible goodness. Dressed in 60's style uniforms of black and hot pink, the PINE*AM trio combine sexy-nerdy comic book esthetics with dorky-hip computer game sounds in a way that couldn't make the Isotope staff happier. For sonic proof of PINE*AM's brilliance take a listen to Gymnopedie 0.1, Far Star Lover, Hidden A, and Space Tug [departure from universe2].

See them live Tuesday night:

PINE*AM @ The Make Out Room
