Justice - †

I think I've mentioned before how I sometimes run across new music via iTunes. Wait, I know I did - because follower Mith told me how lame I was for liking iTunes. Maybe he'll rehash that discussion today. Anyway, Justice is a band I caught up with via the 'Single of the Week'. If you don't know, Apple sets up free downloads of the week, that tend to feature some pretty out there stuff. Fortunately for me, I love the out there world of music. The single they featured was 'D.A.N.C.E' - which I encourage you to listen to. Luckily for me, I didn't give up hope based on one of the more annoying dance tracks I ever heard. I looked deeper into Justice, and I was served. (YES! Sometimes I amaze myself with my wordplay) This is a French band that started disco breaking around 2005 or so. These guys started off producing and mixing only - and saw some pretty solid success. They mixed for well known acts such as Britney Spears, NERD and Daft Punk. Pretty high marks from those people too. That's partially why I was pumped to listen to this. I simply had to get past the one track being really bad. I've brought up the Dracula Musical from the film Forgetting Sarah Marshall before - and these guys had a similar idea. This was intended to be a concept album, that was based on a "opera-disco". Crazy stuff. I challenge any beatnut to listen to this and not tap your toes. It's got a very electric dance feel, which I really love. Very Daft Punk-ish, and who doesn't like what they put out? High marks from me on this record, and you should check it out. Very well done.
