Soviet - "Commute" / by Matt Bomarr

I saw these guys open for Add N To X back in 2005 and I fell in love with them. They put on a great show, and they're record was great. I went a few years without ever thinking about them until I saw Soviet show up on a collaboration with Erlend Oye (Kings of Convenience/Whitest Boy Alive, etc), so I decided to dig this record up again, and amazingly, it still stands up. This stuff is sort of timeless. It's very reminiscent of early Depeche Mode. If you're into early Depeche Mode, you'll love this.
