Jason Forrest (AKA Donna Summer) has a pretty fantastic record label with a pretty fantastic name: Cock Rock Disco. One of the newest artists on his roster is an amazing electro-pop artist from Amsterdam called About (real name: Rutger Hoedemaekers). The debut album, Bongo, is a smashed-up, joyous, hard-hitting collection of insane beats and even crazier hooks. This thing is a pop machine. It’s one of the catchiest and most interesting pop records of the year, electronic or otherwise. This record hooked me with one song ("Think Niles Drink"--see above), and I believe it will do the same with you. The video’s awesome, too.
