Humans and flies look nothing alike, yet their genetic circuits are remarkably similar.
The long-running, Grammy-winning French act Deep Forest continues with Evo Devo, a new album that injects humanity and the natural world into its self-described "electro world music." Evo Devo is 11 tracks of soothing atmospheres, uptempo dance tunes, and meditative moments, including vocal contributions from OYME, a traditionally-minded vocal group from Russia…
Devo was among the most thought-provoking bands to emerge in the aftermath of punk, but before hits like “Whip It,” Devo worked in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio, to make raw, unfiltered music that the group called “Hardcore Devo.” In the summer of 2014, Devo did 10 shows performing these seminal pre-fame songs, created between 1974 and 1977 and rarely played since then. Shot at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, this exciting concert film captures these groundbreaking artists performing the songs that started it all, interwoven with interviews revealing the history of the band.
Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! is the debut album by the American new wave band Devo. Produced by Brian Eno, it was primarily recorded in Cologne, Germany [Conny Planks studio] and released in the U.S. on Warner Bros. Records in 1978. The album received somewhat mixed reviews from critics and peaked at number 12 on the U.K. album charts and number 78 on the U.S. Billboard charts. Recent reviews of the album have been more uniformly positive, with the album charting on several retrospective "best of" lists from publications including Rolling Stone, Pitchfork Media and Spin. wikipedia
