I was almost disheartened by a lack of good music this week; but, as I sat sad and dejected, wandering around the endless abyss that is the internet, behold! I stumbled again upon a rather ear pleasing track by the rising L.A.-electro outfit Hyper Crush.
The more I look into it, the more L.A. seems to be the new breeding ground for pop/electro success. Between LMFAO, Kesha, Super Mash Bros, and now Hyper Crush, there have been more than a few bands that have caught my attention.
I recently posted the Hyper Crush remix of LMFAO’s La La La, the song that originally got me looking at Hyper Crush. Now I’ve listened to their new single, Keep Up (off of the upcoming album) and it knocked me on the floor: the usual club beatz keep the song going at a fast pace from start to finish, the seductive lyrics are perfect for those hawt and sweaty parties, and just the right amount of auto-tune adds that x-factor that is so popular these days.
I would say that their new album will, if anything, hold up to the standards set by Keep Up, so everyone should be waiting with anticipation for that to drop.
I hope everyone enjoys this banger. Sorry I couldn’t find more trax for this week, but I’d rather post one great song than one great song and one marginal song. Stay warm this weekend the only appropriate way for young kids full of vigor to do so: dance your ass off.
