You Fight Like A Girl 4/5 Stars:
[ Dsico That No Talent Hack - You Fight Like A Girl ]
Sydneysider Dsico aka Luke Collision has dropped the bootleg mashup plunderphonics that attracted some international attention to produce this (mini) album of retro new wave pop. Comfortably sitting somewhere between the LCD Soundsystem’s wiry punk funk and luscious textures of Cut Copy’s eighties styled electro pop, this collection of tracks will make you feel like it is 1981 all over again. Predictably the all pervasive influence of Joy Division/New Order on acts of this ilk is especially pronounced but Dsico craftily avoids the descent into mere pastiche by offering a strong selection of original pop songs. Those familiar with Dsico’s work with Clan Analogue and Cindii may consider this album to be a sharp left turn. Yet the burbling 303 on When You Gonna Love Me and the pulsating synth textures suggest that Dsico has not completely forgotten lessons learnt on the dancefloors of the nineties.
Luke Dsico Bio:
After a flurry of musical projects in the late 90s in Sydney Australia, Luke settled somewhat on this Dsico nom de plume and spent a few years exploring the niches of Pop via Mashups, Cover versions, mangled pop songs.
Following later with the release of original alt-pop disco electro releases in 2005 and 2006: "You Fight Like A Girl", "Fool", "City Stirs 12in" and the later "Touch Me (Not Like That)". Which were well received by a small audience worldwide.
Now located in East London Luke has in 2009 been concentrating on writing a few new songs. This EP representing an abridged EP of a bunch of songs recorded in February during an attempt to write an 'Album in a Month' (while still working full-time)
