Funky ’80s synth boogie from the disco machine known as Star Creature. Shiro Schwarz (featured on Star Creature in the past) is a duo from Mexico City. “Together” is magical – like The Revolution fronted by Michael Hutchence and Helene from the BWH Italo classic “Stop.” If I ever get another chance to pick a song for a slow dance at prom, this is what I’d take. “Boogie Ghost” is the first track that made me laugh out loud – it’s just so crafty and mines the world of import 45s better than any Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo throwback or synthwave soundtrack.
Not since Peter Frampton have I wanted to sing along with a vocoder, which I think is a sign of something good. Another wonderful discovery from a label that never ceases to surprise.
[Just a note: Shiro Schwarz will be playing in Chicago April 15 for a Star Creature release party at Hideout.]
