UNITED STATES OF ELECTRONICA
U.S.E.
SONIC BOOM

"Fierce disco party music" is a good start to the sound that is United States of Electronica. The Seattle collective spreads love with vocoder, 4/4 tempos, and unabashed musical fervor. U.S.E., their first full-length, kicks off with "It Is On!" a thrashing, chanting, French house-style number that jumps like a party for hire. "Open Your Eyes" keeps the groove flowing, while "Takiní It All the Way" does indie-ballad in a boompty-boomp style. "If you want love," they sing, "I'm the one to talk to." Itís not all great: there should be no rapping (à la "Night Shift"), and there are one too many interludes that pad the disc. But if you like robot vocals, do-doo-dooing, and electronic hooks, no American ensemble brings it all together as well as United States of Electronica. Thanks to incessant touring that honed their live show, U.S.E., which was originally released three years ago as something of a homemade CD with no label imprint of any sort, has, thanks to much word of mouth, evolved into a successful, pro-looking introduction to the world of United States of Electronica.
