Escape from Planet Love
'Dangerously wacky great stuff' - Roctober 'All of the goofiness can't hide the fact that the Mystechs are really good at what they do... much quirkier and more inventive than most of the indie pop that folks hear about.' - Opus After tackling every genre from New Wave to death metal to show tunes, the Mystechs turn their evil eye on Top 40 hip-hop and r&b for their 8th studio album, Escape From Planet Love. Whether rapping about swamp monsters or sweetly singing the praises of personal lubricant, the Mystechs' gonzo, Ween-meets-Zappa-meets-Beck spirit seems strangely at home among the sounds of fellow Chicagoans Kanye West and R. Kelly. If you wish your hip-hop had a little more sci-fi weirdness or a little less mindless misogyny, then Escape From Planet Love will give you what you need.
