      Mesh
      "Automation Baby"

      „Confirm, Obey, Consume“: when John Carpenter directed “They Live” in 1988, he chose an utopian view on a blind consumer-society in which only his protagonist could decipher advertisements as imperatives with the above mentioned messages. 25 years later, this utopian view seems to have become the new common sense of the Facebook-generation. Mesh use this notion in “Automation Baby” as the main theme of their new album:
      Let’s exchange real-life friends with the virtual ones behind an ever-shining screen. Let’s give in to a brave new Facebook-world that warp and constitute our sense of reality in the future. Let’s give in to consumerism and technology: That’s Automation Baby! I know it sounds ‘cheap’, but their latest offering has all the ingredients to be deemed as one of their absolutely strongest releases yet. Mesh deliver a sonic upgrade, improved production and some amazing arrangements. “Automation Baby” delivers one highlight after the other: The crunchy and hard “Taken for Granted” meets the rhythmical midtempo hymn “Adjust your Set” and the club-oriented “What’s owed to You”, providing that the bands single “Born to Lie” was not the only winner on this album. However, songs like calm and laidback “You could not see this coming” or the ultimately catchy title track “Automation Baby” show that the backbone of the Mesh-qualities remain strong songs and unforgettable hooklines.
