From the cover art to the first synth punches, L.A. Takedown isn’t into being subtle. You want excess? You’ve come to the right place.

First single 'Night Skiing' starts out sounding like one of John Carpenter’s soundtracks from the 1980s with a steady krautrock beat and spunky synth textures. Halfway in, though, it shifts into Van Halen-esque guitar overdrive. Finally, the electro kids and the rock kids can put down their swords and tridents and come together in peace. Fans of Ratatat, The Fucking Champs and even old guitar gods like Steve Vai will dig these tasty licks. This could soundtrack anything from a Sonic the Hedgehog level to a high-octane action movie montage.
