Album Review

A duo to make your teeth ache with delight, Ladybirds is the brainchild of Gym Class Heroes keyboardist Tyler Pursel and singer Teeter Sperber, bolstered by a quartet of guesting vocalists. If cupcakes made music, it would probably sound like Regional Community Theater, fluffy and airy with plenty of sugary icing on top, this is toy town electro-pop, the music a bubbling mix between a kiddie keyboard and a teen's Nintendo, with a bowl of popcorn covered with a whole lot of cheese thrown in for good measure.

Cultural pop references, wry twisting of everyday colloquialisms, the turning inside out of common words and phrases, like the best cartoons, the Ladybirds work on two levels, enchanting the kids whilst simultaneously capturing the imagination of adults. Awash in poppy classics, this regional community theater is obviously ready for Broadway.
