Freezepop, a three piece from Boston and one of my favorite synthpop bands, is playing for free on Oct. 19 at the CMJ Rykodisc Showcase at the Slipper Room located at 167 Orchard. To get in for free, you are supposed to email Rykodisc and RSVP at I tried this and I got a returned reply that said that they’d be back by Sept 15th and to check back then. Yeah… So who knows if it’ll work.

Their first album, Freezepop Forever, is their best in my opinion. Incredibly simple and playful lyrics with beautiful melodies and synthesizer work (especially for using just one instrument to create and compose all the music- the hand-held Yamaha QY-70).


I consider Freezepop to be one of the best modern synthpop bands because they don’t seem to take themselves too seriously or stray into swirly dance-club epic-ness very frequently (like so many new synthpop bands) as they tend to stick to straight pop without too much flair for computer-produced effects. The sound is ultra clean and minimal and Liz Enthusiasm’s voice sounds crisp, smooth and naive. It’s just great pop music, plain and simple.

Freezepop- Science Genius Girl (Hi Phive Mix)

Freezepop- Tracey Gold

Freezepop- Smoke Machine

Their Myspace page has some new songs. I really like “Pop Music is Not a Crime.” I can definitely sympathize.
