Supercreep

Supercreep's (a.k.a. Jodi Delli Santi) self-titled album is everything a sub-par electronica effort should be: danceable and dull, sensuous and silly, polished and predictable. The moniker itself prevents listeners from taking this artist seriously. We already have Supertramp, Supergrass and Superdrag. Great bands, great names. Supercreep may have sounded hip back in 1983 when it rolled off Deborah Foreman's "Valley Girl" tongue. But in 2005 it sounds damned foolish; as if choosing the right person to randomly draw this name out of a hat was the only thought put into it.

In light of that, be prepared for the drugged-up electrofright orchestras of "Mushroom Cloud." Try your best to bear with the pseudo-philosophical drudge of "Evolution" and "Time." And if you're really bored, fast-forward to the half-assed resolve of "In the Dust."

There are times when we should rejoice in the more egalitarian direction the music industry has recently taken. When we should bookmark all possible Purevolume-ish sites to the "My Favorites" tab. Supercreep's latest album is, however, not one of those occasions.
