EOTO: Fire The Lazers!!!

For some reason tons of electronic music takes its inspiration form science fiction. Blame Star trek, Star Wars, Dr. Who, Red Dwarf and Douglas Adams. EOTO the electronic progressive duo formed by Michael Travis and Jason Hann that rose from the ashes of the String Cheese Incident have made a concept album of sorts called Fire The Lazers!!! filled with space opera soundscapes based on loops and beats that are trippy and percussive. This is not the kind of music that would be recommended on a first date, unless some stimulants were used.

For an album with such an aggressive title the tracks are mellow - the kind of after party stuff that music geeks claim to love. For less advanced listeners it is wise to sample this collection with care, let's say no more than three tracks at the time. Best experienced live with a light show that may be hazardous for people who are suffer from epileptic seizures.

Fire The Lazers!! is released on SCI Fidelity.
