The 7-song mini l.p. debut from New York based, Etherdrag recording artist, The Hong Kong explodes to the top of a long list of Hip-dance floor Retro-Pop candy. "Rock the Faces" is more fun than your favorite electroclash, or Phil Spector '60s girlie pop gems, and your best of Blondie, Berlin, Curve, and early Stereolab mix tapes all jammed together. You will be aerobicising to singer Catherine Culpepper's electro-pop New Wave Disco like a first time junkie "(Riding on) the Metro." With Ric Ocasek of The Cars set to produce their upcoming 2005 full-length album, prepare the way for The Hong Kong to rage in your sock feet and living room, or in finer dance salons. www.etherdrag.com/thehongkong
