Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. The podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Todayâ€™s featured selection, chosen by Morning Show host John Richards, is by Motor and is found on their 2007 album Unhuman on Mute:
Motor – Bleep #1 (MP3)
Following up last year’s debut, Klunk, the London duo of Mr. No and Bryan Black return with another release of fast driving, nue-techno dance grooves. But this isn’t your Aunt Sally’s acid house tedium. Motor‘s music, heavy with hypnotic beats and synthetic rhythms, takes you just as quickly to a dark, mirrored discotheque, behind the wheel on the Autobahn, or on the treadmill at your local fitness center. It’s Nitzer Ebb without the fascism, Underworld in smaller doses, Front 242 with better production values. “Bleep #1″ will burn in your brain.
