Out into Outer Space! Robots from the fifties! Vocoder voices from sixties science fiction movies! Column One are totally smitten with science fiction nostalgia. It is actually quite funny. What is even mory fun is the music on the album. It is of course electro, and heavily influenced by Kraftwerk at that. But Column One are more than just imitators, they go their own way, and their playfulness and zest for exploration is difficult not to be charmed by. And when they suddenly insert an obvious Depeche Mode sample it isn't pathetic, it's just fun - Column One don't base whole meals on their band samples, they just use them for seasoning. The production on Electric Pleasure feels both nostalgic and modern at the same time.
