Digital Leather

Taking cues from late 70's/early 80's synthpunk pioneers as the Screamers, Nervous Gender, and The Units, this Arizona based one man band [Digital Leather] rely on just keyboards, drum machines and vocals to set the scene of gloomy electronic desert landscapes and gay night club discotheques.This is the life of Sean Foree, who created this masterpiece in his one bedroom apartment in Tempe, Arizona. Live he borrows members from the Wongs, Reatards, Lost Sounds, and Destruction Unit. Ten tracks that are sure to appeal to fans of the current rebirth of keyboards in punk... but this record surely pushes the boundries of that. [CT Indie]

Digital Leather, the project of Shawn Foree, was managed by the late Jay Reatard. His record Warm Brother came out last September on Fat Possum. There's a new video for his/their song "Kisses" from that record, which is posted below with all tour dates (SXSW included)...
