ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jess takes the stage in Jem-like fashions, with a voice reminiscent of Blondie and Goldfrapp, while Jeff robotically rocks behind a veritable Death Star of synthetic music-making devices.

The photogenic duo load their lyrical cannon with fast cars, fast food, 1-800 numbers and love songs to their synthesizers. To Hyperbubble, guitars are "retro", and sequencers are the key to the future.

Hyperbubble's debut CD, SOLID POP is an addictive collection of bionic beats, bouncy synth lines and melodies that stick to the side of your cranium like a tasty wad of Hubba Bubba. Get your hands on some SOLID POP today! Fans of Depeche Mode, Devo, Yello, Fischerspooner, and Ladytron will surely be pleased.

This is very solid pop,..merrily ridiculous...The focus of the group is proudly and unashamedly that of the synth pop era;
everything's electronic from the drum beats on up, with the exception of the singing (and even that gets the vocoder treatment
every so often). Jess has a perfect voice for the material, wistful and fun at the same time.
- Ned Raggett / All Music



"Mommy was a toaster / Daddy was a blender," says the lead vocalist of Hyperbubble, known only as Jess, and one can't help
but be tempted to believe her. Solid, bubbly, straight up spunky synth-pop with pitch perfect female vocals, sans vibrato.
It's a fantastic, fun listen
— Mike Schiller / Pop Matters


Technology is child's play in the hands of Hyperbubble, The music is innocent and playful while being intelligent enough for
listeners of all ages. Jess and Jeff have an electro-magnetic chemistry that is quite evident. Skillfully crafted pop songs fit for
the young and the young at heart.
- Corporate MP / Electrozine


Part electronica kitsch and part pop bubblegum, this duo of geniuses turns out a great little disc of danceable grooves and
hum-able tunage. Very stylish production and packaging make the disc an instant collectible as well. Give yourself over
to their bouncy verve.
- Jason Manriquez / Sample Press

Under Observation

Synthesized Sci-fi Mixed with Bubblegum Pop Rocks
As the world is continually crashing down all around you, please take time to enjoy a heaping helping of hyperbubble with your MOM & DAD UNITS. Hyperbubble has a number of healthy nutrients which will help ease your mind as well as the mind of your pets. Its effects may at first appear to be a mere PASSING PHASE, but in reality, consumption of hyperbubble could lead to permanent changes in one's outlook on life. Although hyperbubble can be found in many local VENDING MACHINES, it can also be ordered online. So you don't have to drive all over town in your MOONBUGGY to get yours. Now is a great time to stock up as winter is fast approaching and hyperbubble is a great way to keep warm inside without incurring the expense of those rising heating costs. So unless you have a PSYCHIC CONNECTION that tells you the price is going down, you might as welL bE ON your way to getting yours. But while your at it, be generous with your supply and let your friends in on the fun too in the same way you were taught to SHARE YOUR TOYS as a child. Try to keep as much hyperbubble as possible on hand so that you will not have to take ANOTHER RIDE out to scour the streets or internet looking for more when it becomes in short supply. It will fill you with PEP, help RALLY your spirits, and chase your BLUES away. Not like those other refreshments that may temporarily ROB yOu of your energy or cause FREQuent headaches and/or nausea. You will find yourself filled with enough energy to do battle with a BIONIC GIRL once you have had a taste of this kooky concoction. And although it is clearly labelled as SOLID POP, you may find that it has a soft and chewy center that will last and last and last . . . well INTO THE FUTURE!

great bouncy synthpop with crisp style
solid pop is no lie! this duo knows how to rock the synthesizer. perfect amount of dance/seriousness here to please any pop-lover. definitely recommend...

A breath of fresh electronic air.
Mom Dad Unit, the first track off of Solid Pop, is like a breath of fresh electronic air. The intensity of the power pop beats are sure to get you moving. And with lyrics such as "Mommy was a toaster, Daddy was a blender, my brain is a computer…" one can’t help but to sing along the second or third time they hear it.



So a month later was their cd release party and I was hooked. I had to go see what this adorable electronic couple would do on stage. I could not have expected anymore than what they gave us. Jeff and Jess’ energy was full force. And how can you not like a girl in checkered tights and pink wigs?



Part of the attraction to Hyperbubble is not only their capability to lift you up when you’re down but they’re damn nice too. In my experience they are the most responsive band here in San Antonio. They appreciate their fans more than anything and are just happy to be playing their music.

Solid Pop is an awesome CD. "Vending Machine" and the title track are stand-out songs and take the whole CD to new levels of hip.

Ned Raggett

Upbeat electronic glam swing
It's always nice when a band immediately delivers on its promises, and the album title says it all, really -- this is very solid pop, derived from a merry never-neverland set somewhere on the cusp of the 1980s. Jeff and Jess DeCuir's pop-friendly impulses from the early-'70s celebratory Pink Filth translate excellently into Hyperbubble -- if the coordinates are a decade forward in time, their abilities to work it well are beyond question. There's plenty of humor throughout -- "Mom Dad Un!t," which kicks everything off, plays around with the 'I am a robot' trope to envisage a happy domestic situation among machines in orbit -- to go with the crisp, lovely and low-key arrangements. If there's not quite as much of the immediate 'take it to the dancefloor' impulse found in first album. Like Depeche Mode, say, Hyperbubble exists as the cleaner sounding contrast to Ladytron's revivalism -- less grimy and cold, more perky and upbeat. Not that there aren't exceptions to this -- "Psych!c Connect!on," a solid revamp of the glam swing of Chicory Tip's "Son of My Father," has a wonderful, glowering lead synth line, offset by the rest of the arrangement. Then again there's the merrily ridiculous "Pep Rally Blues," which feeds snippets and bits from what sounds like, indeed, said typical high-school event, into a giddy collage. Jeff's singing is almost always filtered through vocoders to lend that extra amount of alienated groove, so hearing him singing straight-up on songs like "Vend!ng Mach!ne" is always an unexpected treat. Jess, meanwhile, has a perfect voice for the material, wistful and fun at the same time, able to make songs like "Leon" -- specifically about a pet cat, who contributes guest vocals in a way -- a gentle treat, and "B!on!c Girl" a completely hilarious one.

Give yourself over to the bouncy groove !
Part electronica kitsch and part pop bubblegum, this is one of the most entertaining spins to be had from Texas. This team of duo genius takes all the lessons one should learn from European groups like Stereo Total and Stereolab’s more blippy back catalog, and turns out a great little disc of danceable grooves and hum-able tunage. Openers ‘Mom Dad Unit’ and ‘Leon’ are instantly memorable and will haunt your every breath until you learn the words and give yourself over to their bouncy verve. Very stylish production and packaging make the disc an instant collectible as well. Be sure to listen to the whole record including the two hidden tracks. Solid Pop is just that.

Super CD im Rtrosytle
So, nun gibt es hier auch mal was auf Deutsch!
Was soll man schreiben: Super CD, gute Qualität und gut Durchdacht.
Wie soll ich das ganze Beschreiben: weiblicher Gesang der ein wenig in Richtung Client geht und dazu (ab und zu) eine männlich Stimme, die durch einen Vocoder geht. Musikalisch sehr verspielt und Analog gehalten.
Zum anhören empfehle ich die beiden Lieder: Psychic connection und Solid pop.
Freuen wir uns auf weiter Musik von ihnen

Jens
