Artist: Ladytron Track: "Ghosts" Album: Velocifero Listen

Someone once said that Nico, the longtime collaborator with The Velvet Underground, sounded liked an IBM computer with a Greta Garbo accent. I always think of that quote when I hear the smooth, electronic sounds of Ladytron -- a band defined as much by the fuzzy, blippy riffs as the sassy, mechanics of female vocalists Mira Aroyo and Helena Marnie. In the future, if robots and humans can peacefully coexist, this is what will be playing at the prom.
