Death in Vegas - Zugaga

The first time I heard Death in Vegas it was on the Lost In Translation soundtrack. I thought the dreamy cascade of guitars and soft female vocals in the song "Girls" brilliantly captured the feel of the entire movie. I was a little surprised to find out later that Death in Vegas are big on satanic imagery... not sure if it's a joke or not, but it doesn't really suit the music I've heard from them up to this point. Their latest album, "Satan's Circus" is all instrumental and sounds overwhelmingly cold, synthetic and mechanical. On first listen, I thought this song was a cover of Kraftwerk. The Canadian release also comes with a bonus disc featuring live recordings from a show at Brixton.
