Chop Chop

Download: Chop Chop -- "C Train David"

Download: Chop Chop -- "Northern Armies"

Los Angeles group Chop Chop release their latest album, Screens, today via Archenemy Records. These songs combine pop, rock, and electronica, with influences ranging from the 1930s to the Bee Gees to Run DMC. Quaintly analog instruments like the French horn, keymonica, and toy Zylophone have been tossed into the mix alongside cranky, craggy digital synthesizers and electric guitars, comparing the unintentional quirks of live sound and the consciously manipulated quirks of digital midi sound.
