Much like Captured Tracks own Tomboy, MOTOFIGHTR fuse organics and electronics seamlessly and effortlessly. On Pacific Post Highway, Expensive Looks’ Alec Feld and Miles Gabriel (Named for Miles Davis and Peter Gabriel. How awesome is that?) craft five futuristic jams a la Daft Punk without all the bravado. Forget futuristic. More like out of this world!
“Real Sex” and “Piano Fuck” are the perfect gateway drugs to get you hooked on MOTOFIGHTR with their seductive beats and lush vocals. The latter sounding as if it belongs in Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element. Throughout PPH, though, MOTOFIGHTR easily manage to funkify the most out there electro with some guitar riffs that’d make Bootsy Collins himself proclaim : “Daaamn!”
“Nomad” is a great example of that but it’s really the finale of a title track that takes MOTOFIGHTR to a whole other level. Take some Angelo Badalamenti-style synths and mix it with some Prince guitar licks and a sick bongo solo adding some Afro-Cuban flavor and you have a recipe for some fresh music, my friends.
