No Pants Space Dance

Something peculiar has been happening to me in the past year. At first I would find myself ripping the knickers off my trembling legs and dancing in public places. This, in itself, did not seem too strange but in a short amount of time later, I grew an unhealthy level of affection for robots. All Terminator units, Robot B9, Bender, Furbies, and the rest of the like. Any humanoid lacking a real heartbeat captured my desire. 

Life went on and I figured my tastes in the world around me were changing with age (wisdom, perhaps?). However, things took a surprising turn when I woke up in a robot suit surrounded by hash blueprints of spaceship designs. 

Not knowing who to talk to, I visited a wise man who was my most trusted source at the time - the robot-eque machine, Zoltar, in San Francisco's Musee De Mecanique. It was here that I asked him the reasoning behind the changes rolling through my body. A few brief moments passed when his card came out of the dispenser reading only three letters:

 

"NVO"

 

Suddenly, it all made sense. On top of my previously mentioned ailments, it all became clear why I would constanly yell "F&CK YEAH!", only read Tom Robbins, have dreams of sexy space girls battling killer robot martians, have a trusted source named Zoltar and create light shows in my room every night before I fell asleep. I had been infected with NVO's countless degree of awesome since first writing about them in August of last year. 

Since I last visited them, they have continued to melt people's faces throughout Northern California. From playing historical venues like The Fillmore in San Franciso to touring around Lake Tahoe, NVO has been growing a dedicated fanbase and receiving the attention they much deserve. 

In November, NVO unleashed their sophomore release as a follow-up to their full album, "Machine Nature." Their self-titled EP continues to dive deeper into the electronic sounds that fall somewhere between the epic nature of George Takei and the fourth-dimension - all while covering listeners in an aura that tastes like a binary star's wet dream. 

 

NVO's new tracks have once again taken a perfect blend of electronic instruments with electric guitar and drums to create a sound that would be perfect for a soundtrack to a Steampunk space saga. Their genre of music has still yet to be named as they continue to push the boundaries of our knowledge in electronic rhythms. After listening, I have fallen further under the bind of their spell. I have accepted the fact that I will continue to be strangely attracted to Gort, don silver spandex on the weekends and put glow sticks at the end of my walking sticks. 

I couldn't be happier. 

 

 

 

Fall under their spell

Leave the world in style. 

 

Mike Laglia, Greg Maximov, Chuck Jones and Justin Ward are:

Convinced George Takei and Betty White to have a baby together during a backstage party.
