It’s time for a Friday Two-fer!
It was hard for me to make a decision on today’s geektrack, so I chose not to decide (which, as Rush will point out, is still a choice). Here are two different tracks from the same group which give a good idea of the fun, geeky energy that The Pinker Tones are capable of putting out.
Karma Hunters is the first song I ever heard from Barcelona’s duo, The Pinker Tones (whose membership is comprised of Professor Manso and Mr. Furia– geek names, or what?). They formed in 2001 and have put out about a dozen albums or so. In this video, we are treated to some deceptively fun animation which kind of has a bit of a political message, though a broad one to be sure. But more importantly, it features a robot dog biting the butt of a trumpet-faced robot.
Now, S.E.X.Y.R.O.B.O.T. is unarguably the geekier entry of these two, from the very tech-influenced music theme and style, to the video featuring a cardboard robot trying to get cardboard-robot-laid. And if you stand there in your leggings and tell me that you didn’t get a bit aroused when Robina, the pink, female robot is introduced, I will call you a liar, sir (or ma’am).
