With their robotic pace of vintage new wave that reflects an era when the Cars and Flock of Seagulls ruled the charts, the Calculators bring a millennial revival of the 1980s with their 10" debut Simplicity and Style. All four songs represent a composite of Moog synthesizers, android vocals, and digital beats. Resulting in a hi-tech ensemble of geek-rock, the Calculators' sound fits into the musical sci-fi realm of Servitron's; the only difference is that the Calculators' comparable counterparts lack a set Lou Reed covers.
