CONSUMER ELECTRONICS


http://dollhousesongs.blogspot.com/
Consumer Electronics is a punk / electro / noise duo comprising ageing renegade Philip Best (ex-Whitehouse) and his American wife, the artist Sarah Froelich. The band's recent releases "Estuary English" (2014), "Repetition Reinforcement" (Diagonal 12", 2015) and new album "Dollhouse Songs" (Harbinger Sound) have cemented CE's reputation as prime movers in the field of avant-garde electronics, twisted beats and apocalyptic performance poetry. Stunningly produced by noise guru Russell Haswell (who occasionally joins the band for live shows), the CE duo are now embarking on a year-long odyssey of live performances the world over.

Quietus said: this is no easy ride, but if you follow Consumer Electronics as they strip bare the caustic facade of modern living, you will find power and, yes, beauty in the dark recesses they reveal.

Dusted said: most striking of the noise albums to grace 2015 was Consumer Electronics’ brutal Dollhouse Songs, which expanded on 2014’s Estuary English with a rampaging diatribe against inequality, prejudice and injustice with the band’s usual mixture of “colourful” language and unrelenting power electronics viciousness. In an echo of some of the above, lead singer Philip Best handed the microphone to his American wife Sarah on two songs, broadening Consumer Electronics’ vision to lead an assault on what has been a turbulent year for the Stars and Stripes.

Louder Than War said: A glorious collision of punk, electro and techno noise ... 'Dollhouse Songs' is the chaotic soundtrack to a country that feels equally as spinning and weird in 2016.
