Music Theory: Take it to the Floor

-Anyone who knows me knows that I'm unabashed in my love of sugary electronic pop/punk, so it's probably not a surprise that I'm giving a favorable review of the Cash Cash full-length, out today. Take it to the Floor sounds like a hybrid of The Cab, The Faint and Hellogoodbye and contains some of the most addicting melodic combinations of guitar and synth that I've heard in a long time. Obviously, a couple of the songs are a little too bubblegum for me, but the chorus on "Concerta" is genius and "Radio" offers a deceptively poignant examination of the tendency of scenesters to feel betrayed when a band blows up. 
-Overall B+.

Hey -

I noticed your Cash Cash review and wanted to reach out and see if you were interested in an interview with the band.

I'm happy to help set something up.
