The Androids

A big hit in their homeland with the catchy but vacuous “Do It With Madonna” single, The Androids are a depressing example of what passes for ingenuity in trivia and pop culture-obsessed times. The glossed-up grunge tunes nag like a bad toothache, while “Brand New Life” manages to be simultaneously clueless and cynical. Avril Lavigne fans may find it radical, but The Androids are as potent as Junior Disprin.
