ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The electronic roots of post-punk Europe are proudly displayed on "Trash-Eighty," the debut release from the Canadian-based underground electro outfit, MANNEQUIN DEPRESSIVES.

Since their conception in 1999, MD has created a project that puts a modern spin on the classic new-wave aesthetic, by combining elements of synthpop, electronica, art-rock, and industrial. The results of this unique combination can be heard on the group's debut album, "Trash-Eighty."

Not just for industrial fans or electro-purists, "Trash-Eighty" assaults your senses with a unique combination of abstract sonic experiments and well-crafted, addictive melodies. Whether it's the aggression of "Autofire," the synthpop shadings of "Reach," or the surreal strangeness of "Portal," honesty and enthusiasm for the electronic sound fuels each energetic track.

"Dial out, sign in, and you’ve just begun listening to Trash Eighty the debut album from MANNEQUIN DEPRESSIVES. With a whopping 14 tracks that clocks in at over 73 minutes of music, Trash Eighty definitely gives you some bang for your buck.

MD has made an album that makes for a familiar fun return to a time of the Rubik’s Cube, Jellies, Esprit Bags, and Space Invaders.

Trash Eighty is an album that builds steam, finally hitting stride around track 6 “Break”, a great little synthpop track that features the catchy, bouncy melody performed on a glockenspiel. Erasure fans are sure to love this track.

Trash Eighty features a wide variety of soundscapes from the neo-industrial track “Headspace” to the wonderfully heartfelt and tender piano track “Untitled”, to dance classics “Reach” and “Cyberdelic”.

Overall Trash Eighty exhibits interesting instrumental arrangements and production. As a compilation that features the evolution of the band from inception in 1998 until late 2001, the album shows a band that has matured greatly. It is clear the next release from this band will be a creative breakthrough."
