Junksista - High Voltage Confessions
Electro, Futurepop Always openly sexual with their lyrics and depictions, Junksista has steadily climbed their way up the electro scene with positive vibes, and a humor they have nailed down throughout their previous releases. And that has only made them want to continue their musical career with charm and a sensational appeal. Released on November 21st, High Voltage Confessions is the next step in their career, and it's a complete blast to get through.

First and foremost, I would like to point out that the wonderful track Live A Little appears on this album, which makes it an immediate must have. I don't think I've ever heard a track that could give me an ear-boner faster than that one, and with the addition of Jane Badler as both another vocalist and background sound, it's amazing. But let me not stay on what I've already covered in a previous article.

I am always insistent on pointing out that Diana's vocals aren't only passive aggressive in tone, but they always have a native seduction attached to them. In other words, if you saw this woman crawling towards you, speaking to you the way she sings in these songs - whether you're a man, woman, none of the two, or both - you'd get beguiled in a moment's notice. I have absolutely loved her chords since I first heard them, and that doesn't change with this release. I recommend The Truth, True Love, and Strictly Physical to get the full range of her glamour and grace.

On the instrumental side, Boog isn't slowing down, any, either. His renditions mock the old and the new; laid back 80s electro meet with modern touches, and the result is very pretty showcases of sound and magic. His work really shines in tracks such as I Hate You, the wonderfully club-like and chill The Truth, and the funky - and funky titled - Panties.

And with these two combined, you get a perfect blend of charismatic performances that's romantic, amusing, and hot and spicy all in one. This is without a doubt one of their finest works by far; listening to their releases has been a blast. Watching them not transform, but improve on their formula up to this point has been fantastic. And, should they continue on the path they've been on, further implementing new sounds, and never changing despite what critics can say, they will certainly become masters of their own niche in no time.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
