Yes, it is I, cheerlubber!
Don’t worry, I’m still very much a part of this blog, whether you want me to be or not. I was away all last week camping with my family so Whuzzerface thought we should do an in-your-face-and-back-from-vacay song for today, so who better than Dragonette? Dragonette has been on our radar for a while, but their 2009 album Fixin to Thrill is what fully converted us to fans. It’s very rare for me to find an album in any medium where I enjoy listening to every single track, and there’s not one I would rather skip to get to a more exciting one. Fixin to Thrill is one of those albums. Even the songs that slow down the tempo a bit are fantastic. The whole album is just great, aka, after you listen to this selection, you should buy the rest of the album and enjoy it just as we did.
Although Martina is the one singing all the time, Dragonette is indeed a band of three members from Canada with an electro-influenced rock sound with a lot of throwbacks to the 80s (I told you we dig that era). Martina has since done a few collabos with French producer Martin Solvieg, which have all been excellent as well and there’s a high chance you’ve heard them once or twice already. I do believe the band is preparing to release a new full album sometime soon, however, and we are all totally stoked for it. Without any further ado, enjoy rocking out and feeling cool to Dragonette’s song Big Sunglasses.
