Love Won't Strangle Me
STREAMLINE The tongue-in-cheek theatricality that Artificial Agent brings to its onstage persona belies the collective skill it draws upon to deliver such telling observations about the human condition as "Turbo Slut" and "How To Be Evil." No, we are NOT being sarcastic or dismissive! This is an exceptional example of "dark" Detroit musings given free reign by a fired-up and talented combo – and it certainly beats listening to the average and unsatisfying AMPhetamine rip that has become far too common in several of our favorite Motor City venues. —ROBERT DEL VALLE
Worth a listen: "Black Clouds"
