|MH-273 Eat Sugar - ¡Levántense!
Sprouting from the fertile Ohio musical landscape that produced everyone from The Raspberries to Brainiac, Eat Sugar's debut full-length ¡Levántense! is the perfect mix of punk rock pugnacity filtered through modern electro, with a dash of heart-on-on-their-sleeves romanticism to keep the blood warm. Produced by musical superstar John Schmersal (Enon, Caribou) in a breakneck nine days, these ten tunes capture everything Eat Sugar is about. Echoes of electro, pop, garage, punk and disco can be heard on the album, a red-hot playlist that can get even the most wilted of wallflowers to dance before they realize what they’re doing. From the spat-out verses of "Standing Still" through the cascading keyboard lines of "Troubled Dreams" to the deep groove of "Shadowside", ¡Levántense! will break your heart, kick your ass, and leave you wanting more.
|In a word: amazing - Cincinnati City Beat / It’s the perfect mix of punk rock and modern electro - Deftune / Eat Sugar blends the intensity and retro essence of the Hives with the uber-cool electro-pop of LCD Soundsystem - iTunes / Eat Sugar is bringin' on the candy-coated, dance-inducing goodness, that's for sure / Metromix
|This Indie/Electro foursome’s first full-length is a fantastic testament to the evolution of the band, which has scaled back some of its earlier “Rock” tendencies (without depleting any of the inherent energy) and created a more eclectic, neon-pulsating Electronic playground, putting them on par with artists like LCD Soundsystem and VHS or Beta, but with the exploratory mindset of Beck at his craftiest. In a word: amazing. - Cincinnati City Beat
