The Death Set are probably funnest when you're most drunkest.

Baltimore-by-way-of-Australia's The Death Set play short and spazzy electro-punk songs that are fueled by crazy keys and a demonic drum-machine. These two guys are just generally intent on making you happy, not necessarily writing the best songs in the world. So this would be recommended if you like bands like Matt & Kim, Team Robespierre and Best Fwends.

The Death Set duo (comprised of Beau Velasco and Johnny Siera) are supposed to be seen and experienced (preferably in a basement or legion hall somewhere), and not really listened to on disc. You're supposed to get all hopped up and hop around with the duo on the floor in front of the stage, and smile and sweat, and act drunk on pure youthful joy. You're supposed to go as crazy as they go, and let The Death Set's lo-fi beats take over your body and soul (for ninety-seconds anyway). It's a fun experience. But there's really no reason to sing this stuff in the shower.
