rough trade exclusive with a bonus cd featuring two brand new spanking tracks and a live at kexp version of 'bad stuff'. 'stuck on nothing' the debut album from free energy was produced in new york by the lcd soundsystem and dfa mainman james murphy, who relished the opportunity to work with guitars again. with a sound quite at odds with the rest of the dfa roster - there's pretty much nothing in the way of a disco or post-punk influence going on - free energy are openly indebted to hoary old power-pop-rockers like tom petty, thin lizzy and cheap trick and pure pop gods like the cars and weezer. we're talking, breezy, optimistic am radio fare - but done right. the band was formed out of the ashes of minneapolis indie-rock institution hockey night by scott wells and paul sprangers. with irresistible hooks, bright power-pop instrumentals, and an overwhelming sense of positivity, it's impossible not to fall in love instantly with this album.
