The Null Device


The new generation of indiekids are making music, and they're not using guitars, Casiotone keyboards or battered old Roland synths from the 1980s. Meet Service Station Youth, extremely lo-fi electropop from Talkshow Boy and friends, which has punk sensibility though probably owes more to Kid606 and insane Europeans with modified GameBoys than to the Pixies or Sonic Youth or whoever. Hardcore or just crap? You decide.

Browsing the Shelflife website, I discovered that there's a Spanish indie band named Moving Pictures. They're described as "Sarah Records-esque bossa pop", and thus are presumably nothing like the eponymous 1980s Australian band best known for the classic yoof-angst anthem "What About Me?".
