Working For A Nuclear Free City - Jojo Burger Tempest (2010)

I recall when Working For A Nuclear Free City made a considerable splash in the music media back when their debut as well as second albums were released. This is because they were pretty good at what they were doing then and luckily enough it holds true still. And what they do is a elegant blend of shoegaze, electronic and noise pop that naturally lends itself to a dreamy, atmospheric style. Perhaps it is the fact that Michigan's perpetually overcast skies have set in for the winter, but sometimes hazy sounds are what one needs. This is not to say that it is all really mellow, in fact the mellower tracks allows others to seem relatively energetic while remaining spacey. This was a two disc release, with the second album being just a the titular track, which times in over 33 minutes long all the while being rather experimental. Overall, a solid album that keeps me a consistent fan of the band.
