My Woshin Mashin - We Came in Peace
Synthpop, Electro I was, least to say, a bit sceptical about a band called My Woshing Machin. It's a name that is a bit hard to take seriously. But that was before I actually heard them, and somehow I feel that the name suits them pretty well, in a good way actually.

My Woshing Machin somehow reminds me of Santa Hates You. Not that they sound exactly like them, more the feeling around the music itself. It's playful and it does not take itself all that seriously. There's no serious evil darkness omg-I-am-so-awesome to be found in this EP, and for that I am thankful.

My favourite track is the opening track "Crab (He Came in Peace)", it's simply amazing. This is a great mix between the female vocals and the male vocals as the crab man, poor crab man, have no friends, so lonely and so hungry.

The sound gets a bit more serious in the upcoming two tracks, "Godzilla" and "Happiness", but still, with some playfulness to it and the female vocals in "Happiness" is awesome. She got some whiny way to sing that just works perfectly.

The last track, "Ctulhu (On The Dancefloor)", is a bit more laid back, but still with some fun sounds to keep it interesting. Still, it does not live up to the standards of the three first songs, even though I enjoy this one as well.

My Woshing Machin made a good first impression; I hope they can keep it up in the upcoming releases. Interesting!
