Synthesis Band You’ve Never Heard Of Band Of The Day: Discrete Encounter

It took me listening to about 20 acts to get to a musical group that I actually had anything to say about. That’s kind of a lot of groups, you know?

Man, I wish my band was that photogenic. Or that Euro-chic. Either way, listening to their throbbing electro makes me want to hold up in a former slaughterhouse-turned-disco, dressed entirely in leather and dance until my bowels turn to jelly.

Check Discreet Encounter’s MySpace here. YOu can buy their new album, 2B1 here. For $25? Really?
