The Sexbots make edgy electronica. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
Eee Pee is the only one we've heard so far
Jim Meyer and Ilima Considine
The Sexbots make dark electronica complete with Illima Considine's quirky and Björk-y vocals. The dreamy, languid "Angel" is a cool track that shows them at their hypnotic best. "Cecilia" is another neat track with a truly suggestive air that recalls a darker Morcheeba. "Too True" is trip-hop sent through the rabbit hole to Wonderland and back again. It's a brief but compelling ep. (email@example.com)
DJ Ceez—beats (1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 10, 11)
Ilima Considine and David Evans
The first full-length by Sexbots continues where the ep left off, Considine's blissful vocals set against harsh beats. "Come on Daddy" is a disturbing piece of work with buzzing beats and a vulnerable vocal. "Tell me you want it" is a lovely song with a dreamy mood that recalls early Björk. "Totally typical" is a languid stretch of a song that sounds very modern and has a catchy tune. They cover "Running up that Hill" in edgy form and close the album with a jaw-dropping version of A-ha's "Take on me". It's a very nice record in all. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
