Some concerts should come with medical disclaimers akin to those found on videogames warning of epileptic seizures resulting from the ensuing visual bombardment. Such is the for case of the upcoming pop-a-thon at Ground Control, featuring Cash Cash, Stereo Skyline, and a host of other similarly spastic audio-sugar spinners. Cash Cash revels in the fact that it sounds like the musical equivalent of eating a pound of cotton candy while sporting Zack Morris style and jumping on a pogo stick. It's utterly throwaway but utterly infectious at the same time. Take breakout hit "Party in Your Bedroom." The Auto-Tuned, Technicolor bounce can't help but evoke a smile yet fades almost immediately between listens.
Stereo Skyline is similarly tooled toward a low-attention-span, pop-hungry audience. Admittedly styled after groups like the Jonas Brothers and Hanson, Stereo Skyline's focus is on feel-good pop tunes: never too heavy, and never too demanding. This is music that rewards you for not thinking too hard and just might be the best possible cure for the dog day doldrums, no matter what Eddie Cochran might have you believe.
