Black Strobe - Folsom Prison Blues 
Black Strobe - Folsom Prison Blues

So here's something I never expected. Black Strobe are an increasingly impressive bunch of Parisians who specialise in darkly seductive synth fuelled rock-pop in the vein of Depeche Mode and Goose. 'Folsom Prison Blues' is a Johnny Cash classic from his jail bird era. Now, put the two things together and what do you get? Well, you get what was already a fairly dark song made even more doom laden and malevolent with low synth notes throbbing away beneath a strangely Alfred Hitchcock-ian guitar riff that's full of suspense and mischief. I keep circling Black Strobe like a vulture over a lion's recently deceased carcass but sooner or later I'm going to gorge myself on their fleshy goodness. Is that weird? I don't care.
