Bad Teeth Rock, Chiptune Bright White Lightning Rock/Pop in the same spirit as The Strokes, The Hives and Mando Diao works very well together with chiptune, something Data Airlines signed Bright White Lightning has figured out quite well in this six track EP called 'Bad Teeth'. The sound is quite similar to The Strokes' 2001 album 'Is This It', only pushed through your Atari 500 or your Commodore 64. You will even notice both got the same "old microphone" effect. Musically, this works perfect and the sounds truly blend and mix, without anything being rejected. They manage to make such a nice flow in the music, it's impossible to keep yourself from doing the toe nod (the feet version of Nick's copyrighted Goth nod). It's so good that even the (almost) instrumental track "Extra Ordinary Part 2" works fine. The one thing that falls a bit flat on this EP is the vocals. It doesn't matter how absent-minded the singer of The Strokes might sound, he still deliver some feeling and energy, whereas Bright White Lightning for the most of the time simply sound bored. However, the track "April 10", this changes and here we can actually hear some emotions rather than static human like sounds that imitates some kind of feeling. This is of course therefore a superb track and by far the best of the EP. Also worth checking out the track "Amigo", that is a bit more 8-bit than pop/rock. The two Data Airlines releases I've heard have both been very interesting, where established genres get the 8-bit tune up. It's not always the release of the year in my opinion, but I always get curious every time I get to listen to something new from them. So should you. 450
