In Processing

Technological Epidemic is a Johnstown, PA based quartet and among the flagship bands from the locally operated, hugely prolific multimedia arts collective, My Idea of Fun. They were kind enough to send me their and MIF's latest physical release, a 7" that preserves what are actually two b-sides, pressed up to accompany their slightly older LP of earlier this year, Hollow Cost. The palette here is solidly DIY pop and lends plenty of fuel to immediate comparisons with the durable genre-core of Elephant 6, further held up by idiosyncratic vocals and personal lyrics. Definitely a winner.
