Futurama by Supercar (2001)
It’s no secret I love older music. By the time I discovered this album, the group had already disbanded (with some members going on to form the group LAMA). It’s a shame too, because this was such a standout album. It takes all that was enjoyable about millennial music and wraps it in a blanket of bubbly electronic goodness.
The Japanese lyrics, with the occasional English thrown in, have a rhyme and catchy repetitiveness. I often find myself trying to sing along, usually horribly. I may not understand the lyrics, but I try not to let that stop me from enjoying something new (even if it is old).
All of the songs on this album are pretty solid. “Baby Once More” is reminiscent of a song by Sugar Ray, while “New Young City” has more of a Goo Goo Dolls/Verve feel. My other favorites include “A.O.S.A.”, “Blue Subrhyme”, and “I’m Nothing”. Because Amazon doesn’t have any track previews, I’ve included some Youtube videos below for your viewing pleasure.
