Electronic Dreams

Three different bands, three disparate takes on how to mix electronica into their eccletic sound palattes. Indiana two-piece Totally Michael blends electro with indie pop sound in such upbeat hits as "Casual Satisfaction" and "Winona." Meanwhile, Texas trio Best Fwends adds in keyboard and drum-machine weirdness to their gutteral punk wailings; and SoCal one-man act Wizwars features a portly fellow who creates Nintendo-like 8-bit epics using a circuit-bent Gameboy.
