Album Notes
Electric Laser People formed in the fall of 2004. Their debut album, Straight Talk on Raising Kids, brings their influences into sharp relief. From the rap/punk aesthetic of the Beastie Boys to the synth infused disco of LCD Soundsystem, they have taken the tools of electronic musicians and DJ kids to augment their live sound. They recorded in their studio and produced the album in Ableton Live.

"1980s inspired dance rock with a good beat and hooks a crowd can sing too." - Boston Globe

"... innovative lyrics that look into the lives of teenagers." - BostonNOW

"... fun electronic jams that punctuate each note with a finesse bands with millions of dollars in a budget aim for." - smother.net

"Holy crap! People love your music... Everytime I play it I get calls. Not angry calls either." - KXLL Dj

"Electric Laser People take on old-school rap style in a whimsical manner by draping absurd lyrics over minimal electronic sound effects and guitar crunches, like a sonic merging of Ratatat and Licensed to Ill."
- All Music Guide / Billboard.com

Electric Laser People has performed extensively in the Boston area and NYC. Dan Paluska (vox & bass), Grant Kristofek (guitar), and Clark Kemp (drums) formed the three piece core of the group. In 2006, Jessica Riley, a classically trained opera singer, has brought her talent to the group with powerful backing vocals and keyboards on the album and in live shows.

This CD rocks! Better than a gallon of chemical cologne at getting the womenfolk in a make-out mood.


Don't feel guilty cause it's made of titanium!
Just a warning... these songs will get stuck in your head. I've been listening to these tracks since my CD arrived a couple of months ago. The electric laser peeps (formerly "the product") have crafted an eclectic mix of rock, nerdhop, and catchy hooks. Clear the floor when you put in this CD, cause you'll be dancing!

My favorite tracks: X-Girl, Machine, Disco3000!
