Hans Möller and Michael Zorn make up Boy Robot. The two make dance-friendly but sophisticated electronica. "Invaders of Vanity Clubland" is remarkably wistful while still having a driving beat. The raucous "We Accept our parents Credit Cards" rocks a bit more. "Live in Vanilla" takes the latent melancholy out in the open. It's here that the boy robot rips off the happy mask and reveals himself as Marvin from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The song might have fit on the soundtrack to Lost in Translation with its eastern tones. "Super Scorer" is more dancefloor friendly and superbly so.
So cheers, Boy Robot.
