"It's downright epic with Gun Club-ish, Bunnymen-esque texturing and Bowie cool. The music's lust groove and powerfully sexual dynamic is amplified lyrically and visually with lead vocalist April Laragy ÂÂ-Frank DeBlase

Coming Out Electric
SELF-RELEASED

Imagine a lesbian-fronted sextet combining David Bowie's glamour, Barbarella's sci-fi camp, Pink Floyd's sonic extravagance, and Goldfrapp's gauzy vocal drama, and you've begun to wrap your head around Rochester, N.Y.'s, unlikely but utterly sublime Atomic Swindlers. Their self-distributed debut album luxuriates in the alienation of early-'70s gay aesthetics, but vocalist April Laragy puts a girl-on-girl twist on Bowie's androgynous androids with lushly vibrating tracks like "Intergalactic Lesbian Love Songs." Best of all, these arch retro-futurists boast art-rock chops that fell out of fashion before the Atomic Swindlers were even born.

The enhanced CD, "Coming out electric" contains the video that was awarded the "Style Council award" at HypeFest 2005.

Who's the New Gwen?

We'd never want to replace her, but one chick is deserving of Gwen -size adoration.

When Atomic Swindlers broke onto the scene with their debut CD, Coming Out Electric - a concept piece that follows the trials and tribulations of a sexy 23rd century heroine, replete with non-gendered sex, love, time travel and intergalactic mayhem - the band was compared to everyone from PJ Harvey to Blondie. But with lesbian Barbarellaesque frontwoman April Laragy, one comparison is really clear: She's the new Gwen Stefani. Not that each song on this enigmatic cosmic groove is riffed from No Doubt, but Laragy seems at times to be subverting Stefani's sound with a slightly less ska-influenced, more introspective voice of her own. And that's a good thing. In the midst of the great sucking sound called https://www.tradebit.com (or American Idol, or whatever horrible pop permeation is getting all the radio play this week), chicks like Laragy and Stefani open up new channels for women who don't fit mainstream culture's tired old ideas about what's girlie and what's not.
