As a long-time fan of Fresh Body Shop, I decided to review another album this time around. My Yellow Microphone is one of several albums that Pedro released back in 2011. 2011 saw the beginning of a more electronic, disco and funky sound whilst surprisingly managing to keep some of the Gothic Rock edge that led me to become a fan in the first place. The album has a bit of an experimental feel to it, with Pedro trying new things. It worked and I find myself listening to the album on a regular basis.
Do I have any favourite tracks? It is a tie between the title track My Yellow Microphone and the seventh track Come Get Some. These offer a glimpse into the transition to the slightly different style that began that year. These songs are also really fun to listen to and repeatable.
In conclusion, this is a must-listen for folks that love FBS’s music. If you are unfamiliar with Fresh Body Shop but have a love Electropop and Synthpop, then I highly recommend that you give the album a listen over at the hub of your choice. If you like what you hear, be sure to tell others about it.
