LADYTRON / Witching hour (2005)

Ladytron deliver a clever mix of sugary pop and moody electronic beats.  I can hear elements of Chemical Bros, Goldfrapp, Kraftwerk and even KMFDM in there.  I suspect there are many more influences in very different genres that I know nothing about.  The song structures are simple but effective, carried along by the dreamy vocals of Helena Marnie.  If you listen too closely it can get repetitive, so put it on while doing something (housework or naked vacuuming) and let it be your companion for a while.  It's catchy and covertly infectious.
