“There’s a reckless innocence in Sweet Electra’s sound that’s charmingly attractive, even to the staunchly anti-pop curmudgeons like me, and perhaps that’s what is so strong about the album: it’s accessible without sacrificing any of its integrity.”
FLIPSWITCH BAND OF THE MONTH: APRIL
“This is the type of band you can’t wait to show off to your pretentious music snob friends or to rejuvenate that iPod long since weaned on too much Lady Gaga and Owl City (I like those too, but I’ll deny it to my grave if I have to).
April 2nd, 2010 by JB Bonifacio
BEST OF LATIN
“Producer Giovanni Escalera’s signature sound of feminine voices singing in Spanish, Portuguese, French and English over electronic bass and beats makes for calmly intense music.”
Enrique Blanc, La Banda Elastica, Los Angeles, CA.
CD REVIEW EUROPE
“I’m just very surprised that this band, Sweet Electra are on their third album, “When We Abondoned Earth”, and I’d never heard of them before!I’m sure this album is going to open up a lot of ears over here in Europe.”
