- Debut release on Mad Decent- Featuring 3 members of the band “The Faint”
“Depressed Buttons sounds like techno gone wrong from children of the corn in Nebraska” – Diplo
Most commonly known as three-fifths of the influential indie synth outfit, The Faint, Clark Baechle, Todd Fink, and Jacob Thiele have begun their journey into the future of sound with their new project Depressed Buttons.The men behind the drums, vox and keyboards of the revered band were among the first to give punk kids a taste of keyboard-based dance music in the late 1990s, when dancing was not cool, and now outfitted as Depressed Buttons, they’ll take on the electronic/dance world with an entirely new sound. With a filthy lust for synthesizers, the band creates all their own tracks leaving listeners entranced and entangled within a web of angular stabs and thick pads. Don’t let the word “depressed” fool you, a button that’s depressed isn’t sad, it’s turned on, which is exactly what their new EP QWERTY does to listeners.
Originally released on Dec 14, 2010.
