childproof
Like the poison sugar-cube, childproof is an odd blend of self-conscious weirdness and sincerity that combines slices of New Wave and, "Roy Orbison re-imagined by David Lynch," with deceptively satirical lyrics that conjure up vivid musical pictures of post-ironic America imagined by a 90's kid remembering the 80's too well, and the 70's via Nick At Nite. Playing in styles ranging from progressive garage-rock (a la Pere Ubu) to crooner/lounge doo-wop, 'deranged carnival music', and noise art-pop, childproof's music is improbably coherent considering its consistently mutating style. Live shows feature spectacles such as a, "Red velvet cake-alien autopsy by my drag-queen with fondant, that both delighted and terrified a grandmother," and, "Dressing in drag as my ex-girlfriend, but only on one side of my face." In 2012 childproof morphed into a primarily electro noise-pop threesome, "That blends synthetic and live elements to suggest a wistful robot," that merges live band spontaneity with DJ set dancability, "Who is programmed to party."
