“London Transit's sleek and stylish debut lands the local synth-poppers smack in the middle of the indie-electronica landscape, blipping and humming away somewhere between the catchy beats of Hercules and Love Affair and the sugary vocals of Hot Chip. With a quirky, lighthearted approach to heavy subjects (the sinking economy, for example), the Kansas City trio successfully floats candy-colored dollops of synthesized sweetness over murkier lyrical topics. And with tracks that are polished, streamlined, buffed and waxed, Digital Kid sounds like the four years of meticulous work that went into its making. Tinged with humor and spunk, Kid gleams with ruthlessly glossy beats and minimalist pop sounds. Each track rings with pure intention... hipster electro. Either way, London Transit's new album boasts clean beats, fun lyrics and poppy hooks. Hell, we'll dance to that.”
“London Transit released their full-length album Digital Kid in early July 2009 after working on the electro-based compositions over the past four years. Updating two early tracks “Capital” and “Target Market” and developing a fresh batch of songs was worth the wait. Shiny and sleek, these songs wiggle through dance-pop grooves like a Brazilian supermodel plunging across a Slip-and-Slide. ”
"We were like, 'Screw it, we're going to get an MPC,'" Schick says with a laugh. "We started again with a whole new perspective. There was a newness, a freshness and a whole spectrum of sounds I'd never tapped into. The possibilities are endless — you get to use claps and lots of really great bass."
