Contact Kid is Mixel Pixel's third full-length album following up last year's indie-adored Rainbow Panda, receiving praise from Filter, Outburn, Rollingstone.com, Giant Robot and more. Their sound is still "part pavement indie bristle, part unicorns agro-cute" resulting in "half-dazed genius" (Ottawa Xpress), but the sound has matured. Instead of relying on old school video games to carry the music, the sounds serve to punctuate the soothing melodies and romantic lyricism.
