STERIOGRAM: This Is Not The Target Market
By Roxie Haines
In a market where second albums commonly under-perform Steriogram have reinvented themselves with a heavier, harder sound to follow up their 2003 debut which earned them mainstream and international popularity. Having been released from their lauded US record deal with Capitol Music, the now independent group have taken full advantage of the creative freedom and produced an album for themselves. With rock anthems like opening track Get Up, Own Way Home and Kare Kare the band's lyrics are catchier, guitars more driving, drums more full on, backing vocals intense and Tyson's rap vocals faster then ever before. The album is full of energy, much like Steriogram's exciting live performances. Satan is a Lady, Talk About It and Built on Lies remind us of their previous hits White Trash and Walkie Talkie Man and reassure us they have not lost their humour or wit. Tracked and recorded at York Street Studios, engineered by Steve Roberts and mixed by Andrew Buckton at Studio 203.
