Autogramm: No Rules

Synth post-punk trio Autogramm are dancing on a volcano on their new album No Rules, a collection of upbeat Dystopian floorfillers. Feeling good about feeling down is hard thing to do, but they pull it off with old school keyboards, vintage vocal effects and drum machines. They can play it really fast when they want to (Bad Day and Too Loud). Naming all their influences will require quite some digging and head-scratching - is that a Hall and Oates bit? There are easy ones as well. The Kim Deal-alike bass part as the foundation Fuck Fast Fashion is a nice touch.

Sure, they have many a concern about the current state of affairs - it shows rather prominently in the lyrics of Anxiety and I am a Situation, but they are dead set to find a silver lining. What's not to like about as song like Jody is a Cop, a chance meeting between the Ramones meet Devo that really rips. They are a band that think outside the box, cooking up a heady mix of genres with reckless abandon.
