Song of the Day 4/2/08: Ladytron - Black Cat
Ladytron is back with a new single, the widespread reception of which can be summed up in the following sentence: "well, uh, it's pretty Ladytron-y, but then again it's so much better." Yep - if "Black Cat" is any indication of the forthcoming Velocifero, Ladytron doesn't have to worry about alienating their old fanbase - that signature style, something akin to dance jams played underwater, is still here. But if you've been a little bored by the Liverpool group in the past, you'll want to give this track a chance to change your mind. Driven by bass and drums - which sound like they're trying to pound their way out of a black hole - it's fuller, darker, a marked step up from their past work.
