It's no secret that I'm a huge Depeche Mode devotee from way back, and although the synth community might dismiss my comments this a blasphemous rumor, I'm here to proclaim that the German trio
Camouflage, with their superb album Sensor, has surpassed anything the mode has released since the Violator-era.
Sensor oozes with superb production and charismatic vocals. It's a well-balanced electronic work of art, beautiful and warm, yet hauntingly melancholy. It's been three weeks since I put it in the CD changer and it seems to get better everytime I listen to it. If you're looking to step off the dancefloor, and enjoy some great "listening" music, check out Sensor.

Lots of fun to be had, getting closer my fellow robots. Here's just a sampling:
Human League - 8/19
Don't you want them? If the answer is yes, you'll have to drive to The Edge in Palo Alto to see the Human League, at their only San Francisco Bay Area appearance.
Soviet - 8/22
Catch electro sensation Soviet at what I believe is their first Bay Area appearance, at Club Fake.
Burning Man - 8/25 through 9/1
The party on the playa will be Beyond Belief. Will you be there?
Fischerspooner - 9/15 and 9/16
Casey, Warren, Lizzie and the rest of the gang return to the Fillmore for the 2nd leg of their US tour. Rumor has it that they'll be performing some of the new material from their upcoming new album.
Tommie Sunshine - Bouncing off Satellites
As mentioned previously, if you've got an XM satellite radio receiver then tune in to 'On The Move' at 10:00 pm EST to hear Tommie's new radio show, Tommie Sunshine's Revolution.
