The Birthday Massacre's new "Falling Down" could have been written in 1985 -- but 1985 couldn't have handled it. The keyboard-heavy coed band rocks harder than ever on the new Walking With Strangers LP, an electro-storm of grinding guitars, explosive synths, and whirling pop melodies. And if you prefer your dance music with bigger beats, similar sensuality, and a touch more trance, show up early for a rare live set by Cleveland's Encoder. Whether your electronica ideal is futurepop or retro, it's time to break out the vinyl.
