Twin Cities Mayhem

"Nobody invented this electropunk thing. No city can claim it (though New York certainly tries). It's simply what happens when you take a generation of bored teens and twentysomethings - raised on hardcore punk, British techno, Nintendo, and Doritos - and place cheap digital recording technology within their grasp."


Bring together fifteen bands from the Twin Cities area. To begin with, think Devo on some 'roids. Get a little dirty here and there (think Peaches), a sprinkle of some vintage techno-industrial (think Nitzer Ebb or KMFDM), some light-hearted silliness (They Might Be Giants or Gravy Train!!! anyone?), and just a whole lack of inhibition. End result: Twin Cities Electropunk Volume 4, available for FREE at TC Try two of the tracks below, then head over and download the rest for your listening pleasure. To top it off, you can download Volumes one through three while you're at it.
