Penguin Prison – The Worse It Gets

Penguin Prison is just so paunfully good at making pop music. “The Worse It Gets” is the A-side to his latest 7″ – I posted the B-Side “Something I’m Not”, which I would consider to be an A-Side since they are just both so amazing So this Double A-Side 7″ is a pop music assault with its lofty synths a la Talk Talk and Japan. Penguin Prison is going to be my Miike Snow of 2010. April 8 at Mercury Lounge, NYC Penguin Prison will be making full live band appearance, then May 8 at Brooklyn Bowl. I want a full album from this fellow now!

They managed to take this spacey epic track into a baroque-esque tune. What talented young men.

Who is ASTROLABE? How do you describe your music?
ASTROLABE is organized by 3 members, a young boy, a modern computer and an old computer.
The modern computer loves 80’s idols so much and the old one likes simple beats and synth sounds.
The boy makes them play together. The three live in Tokyo.

What are your influences?
I’m very influenced by Y.M.O and 80’s Japanese Idols.

What do you think of the Japanese electronic music scene?
I think the Japanese electronic music scene now is not so good…
I don’t like Shinichi Osawa that much.
A new generation of Japanese electro is rising!

Future plans for ASTROLABE?

Mmm… it’s very difficult question. because I don’t know even about tomorrow!

I really like ASTROLABE’s production style with his choice of samples and how he manipulates them. I really like what he does on “FLAG” with that sax sample, it reminds me of something Mr. Oizo would do. “A Trial Run” is totally paying homage to Daft Punk 🙂 Those Japanese love Daft Punk.
