SF-EMM member Michael Falk has released his debut album as Picobots titled Melanie Griffith. The album embraces 80’s style production values featuring snappy bass lines, reverb drenched guitars, wailing saxaphones, layered vocal harmonies, synth drums and more! Picobots counts The Human League, early Depeche Mode, and John Carpenter and Vangelis film soundtracks among his influences.
I’ve been listening to it for a few days and it’s a great blend of rock and electronica, even a little glitchiness and dubstep bass in there. All of the songs have a really unique character and you’ll be listening to them again to pick out the little things hidden in the complex layers. You can also check out their making-of video:
If you watch closely you’ll also see a duck pond in there…
