Polysics are a Japanese four-piece that combine snotty new wave with old-school video game soundtracks to create a very unique tone. As described in their press bio, they “forge their riveting music using conventional rock instruments, augmented by synthesizer, vocoder, and computer programming.” What this means is everything from robot vocals to techno beats and strange blips and beeps make their way into fuzzy rock songs. No longer on Asian Man Records, the band has put together Polysics Or Die!!!!, a greatest hits-type of record that includes tracks from their back catalogue as well as five new songs. While this is some of the most interesting and strange music I’ve heard in a while, it doesn’t always work. The band sometimes uses their technique to craft hook filled musical freak-outs, while at other times the songs just border on annoying.
