Circa Spring (2)007, these secret remixes were issued in slinky, silver static packages as one-off promotional items for WMC (Winter Music Conference) Miami. Only 300 copies were pressed, and we thought these clandestine beats deserved a digital outing on their 10th Birthday. Also includes: NEW REMIXES by Steven OLaf and Chris Jay; the original 2004 Elevator Operator demo by Dory Kahalé, a top secret bonus track + a physical copy (CD) of the Lolly Pop 2007 full length <3
LINGERIE: LOST REMIXES + BONUS TRACKS
LINER NOTE by JON HUNT
"Wanna talk about roads not taken? An '80s-obsessed, New-York-Underground-loving, sex-kitten songwriter was at large in Minneapolis for much of the '00s and somehow didn't become enormously famous. Lolly Pop's too-brief reign of Minneapolis electronic music ended as much music from our storied northern town ends: with a pile of killer records and zero Super Bowl performances. Yup, I'm saying it: Lolly Pop a.k.a. Brooke R. Calder - with help from The Time's Monte Moir, Dr. Fink of The Revolution and The Cuban Boys' John Matthews - was the first and smartest of a batch of '80s synthcore revivalists. Zanier than Katy Perry? ABSOLUTELY. More fabulous than Gaga? ARE YOU KIDDING?! More brilliantly pop-songwritery than both? You can certainly argue it with "#GLMRZLIFE" or "Elevator Operator", and now you can travel those roads in all of their bright, shiny, synthpop glory."
