Album Art Porn: Keytar Hero

I was randomly looking up music on Spotify during one of my typical “let’s type random shit into the search bar and see what happens!” browsing sessions when I discovered a three-track EP called Keytar Hero by an artist named Vodge Diper. (Cute.)

My eyes could not help but be drawn to this breathtaking album art for obvious reasons:

Vodge Diper - Keytar Hero

You know, because it’s a SKULL WITH KEYTARS COMING OUT OF ITS EYE SOCKETS. As if this weren’t awesome enough, there are two backup skulls blasting frickin’ laser beams from their eye holes, presumably for the purpose of vaporizing people who don’t like keytars. To which I can totally relate.

But what does it sound like?

Keytariffic! I quite like all three tracks on this album, so much so that I’m still listening to them on repeat as I type this.  It’s a synth-heavy, upbeat instrumental mix of phat beats and danceable techno/trance that sounds like what I wish was the expanded soundtrack for Marble Blast Ultra, for the one nerd reading this who understands that reference.

Vodge Diper, I think, is a DJ from Daegu, South Korea. At least that’s what I was able to piece together from a SoundCloud, Facebook, and a few other places I found the artist. I’m giving him (or her?) an enthusiastic thumbs up for this album, or whatever it is, and have already started consuming everything else I could find from this artist on Spotify.

Come for the keytar and laser beam shooting  skulls. Stay for the delicious electronica.

What is Album Art Porn?

A recur­ring fea­ture in which I ran­domly pick an album I’ve never heard of to lis­ten to and review based solely on its cover art. It could turn out to be the most amaz­ing thing I’ve ever heard…or com­pletely suck.
