Ghostland Observatory

Mashing together electro, rock, and funk and taking cues from such artists as Daft Punk and Prince, Ghostland Observatory formed in Austin, TX, and consists of vocalist/guitarist Aaron Behrens and producer/beat-maker Thomas Turner. The duo played its first show July 4, 2004, and the following year put out its debut, delete.delete.i.eat.meat. Paparazzi Lightning quickly followed in January 2006. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi

For its first album after becoming overnight sensations at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2006, the band has jettisoned the last remaining vestiges of that most indestructible of rock tropes, the electric guitar. This is electronic music made without computers; analog synths, banging drum machines and Aaron Behrens’ voice, getting stronger and more Freddie Mercury-esque by the minute.

“Codename: Rondo” has a promising enough start. Sure, “Glitter” doesn’t find Ghostland Observatory falsetto freakout specialist Aaron Behrens anywhere near as scorching as he was on “Paparazzi Lighting” opener “Piano Man,” but Thomas Turner’s minimalist electronic beat is groovy enough.

A cynic could be forgiven for having doubts about Austin dance rock duo Ghostland Observatory’s worthiness as a Saturday night headliner. 2008’s “Robotique Majestique” was released to uneven reviews, and while the local electro pioneers built their reputation partially on the strength of a previous smash Austin City Limits performance, they’re unquestionably orders of magnitude less popular than the Dave Matthews Band.
