Ladytron Celebrates a Decade of Electro Synthpop at Grand Central October 15
It's hard to believe that it's been a decade already. Ten solid years of bleep-bleep, bloop-bloop electro synthpop courtesy of the Liverpool-based quartet known as Ladytron. Twelve years if you count that 1999 EP, Miss Black and Her Friends, released only in Japan.
After five studio records, a live album, a few compilation discs, and a handful of EPs, Ladytron is still relevant. And unsurprisingly so. In those ten years, the group's steadily matured, and its latest, Gravity the Seducer, is a perfect example.
Gravity the Seducer is less about beats and more about roots. Each track on the album is a subconscious homage to pop music that spans 50-odd years. It's ambient and far less intense than the foursome's previous efforts while still as captivating as ever.
