The subversive underground award of the month goes out to Mindless Faith whose band name brings out a chuckle every time I think about it. Mindless Faith have an peculiar mixture of pop and electro influences which seem to range from some of the more danceable Jesus Jones, the sound fabrication of Noxious Emotion and the subtle vocal tonality of (insert cringe here) Trent Reznor. For all the crap I may have given Trent in the past I do enjoy the sound and texture of his voice which he seems to share with J-sin of Mindless Faith. In fact the more that I think about it the more I can find the analogous comparison to 'Pretty Hate Machine' in the sheer amount of musical diversity found within one tiny package. This should be taken within a grain of salt however as much as 'Pretty Hate Machine' might have dragged me kicking and screaming into the electronic music genre,'The Silence' has kept me enraptured for many more hours of listening pleasure. Mindless Faith are one of those bands who always seem to creep up behind me with a blackjack and knock a little sense into my thick skull with their inventiveness and ingenuity and leave me a more well rounded person musically.

Mindless Faith is:
J-sin - sound design
Chris Sevanick - sound manipulation
