Combining Synth-pop melodies with elements of Funk and Hip-Hop, Junksista’s latest release, High Voltage Confessions is a departure from what I was expecting. It took me a few listens for me to truly appreciate the album. There is nothing here to be taken seriously, just gritty, dirty fun. From The funky bass lines and rhythmic guitar riffs of “Live a Little” and “Panties” to the clean synth melodies of the “Truth” and “I Said,” Diana’s lusty vocals prove to be provocative and stick with you like a presidential stain.
Some of the more noteworthy tracks include “True Love”, “Live a Little”, and “Stom”. All three are strong tracks on their own, and easily hold up to the club friendly grooves of “Get a Grip” and “P.I.T.T”. Even the tracks that I found to be kind of dumb on my first 2 or 3 listens have grown on me. I find myself singing along to “I Hate You” and “Sex on a Stick,” throughout the day.
If you have an eclectic taste in music, I highly recommend checking out High Voltage Confessions. For those on the fence, I would at least take advantage of a la carte options. I am anxiously awaiting the Bonus Tracks version. High Voltage Confessions is scheduled for release on Nov 21, 2014 on Alfa Matrix. For more information, visit Junksista.de or alfamatrix.bandcamp.com.
