Electrelane - The Power Out (2004)
Electrelane is four women who have a rock fantasy and want you in it. The Power Out was the first release on the British Too Pure label. Steve Albini produced it (think: Pixies, Nirvana, The Stooges, Cheap Trick). If that doesn't say enough, farewell. Electrelane, is a rooty alternative rock band with the creative tendencies of bands like Sonic Youth, but sans the mess. They keep it tidy.
This, like the Os Mutantes from an earlier post, has enough rockability to fuse a room of disconnected neurotransmitters. In other words, it is a great album for social gatherings and rug cuttings. I highly recommend this album.
