Can't believe I never flipped over "Pump Up the Volume" and listened to this until now ... shoegazey weirdness with beats, almost sounds like Gang Gang Dance.

And on another totally unrelated note I'm psyched to finally see Glass Candy tonight at LPR along w/ Nite Jewel. And Bottin's "No Static" was my favorite new song even *before* it had some weird Lucio Fulci cut-up for a video.
