Children of the CPU

My former roommate’s girlfriend’s former roommate’s Neo New Wave/Electropop duo — Children of the CPU — not only has a really pretty cool album (geek-chicishly titled Back to BASIC), but they got air time on my fave podcast — CBC’s Radio 3. Right in between The Cansecos and Habitat. This rates major coolness points as far as I’m concerned. I remember Amy telling me a couple of years ago about how Cam was setting up recording equipment and then hearing a couple of his tracks when I was in Montreal. Happily the whole album is now up on their website, and it’s a really fun listen.

It really does make me want to write songs and catch fireflies like the other hipsters do, and hey, how many albums make you feel that way?
