about

Dee Dee Rocks the Galaxy is a B-Movie blast of futuristic fun: A synth rock opera fusing Flash Gordon with the Wizard of Oz with the role of Dorothy played by a 21st Century Riot Grrl. The film premiered in 2014 at the 48 Hour Film Fest in San Antonio, Texas, with Hyperbubble winning first place for Best Musical Score. In the tradition of Prince's soundtrack to Batman, Hyperbubble recorded additional material inspired by the film.

The listener follows Dee Dee in her adventures on Planet Theremin by way of the movie dialogue inserted throughout the album, climaxing in a musical battle between our teen heroine and the diabolical Emperor Korg's Guitar Ninjas.

For the music, Hyperbubble set their barrage of synthesizers, theremin, stylophone, electronic drums, and vocoder to "Kill" and take a variety of stylistic approaches: Galaxy a Go-Go and Moog Manoeuvers are multilayered funk machines, while Runaway Love Slave solely consists of electronic percussion. Video Vortex and Planet Theremin are ethereal and atmospheric, while Dee Dee's Theme and Kill Zone Kid sound like what would happen if Motorhead changed their name to Moogerhead.

The album's climax, Showdown in Space features two firsts for Hyperbubble. It's the first time actual film characters do the singing. It's also the first time a guitar appears on a Hyperbubble album, though band members Jess and Jeff disavow it's use, pointing out that they didn't play it, the evil Guitar Ninjas did.

The Science Fiction genre seems perfectly suited to Hyperbubble, and they certainly appear to be having tons of fun on this, their sixth album. Pure Pop For Now People Records invites you to join in the fun and teleport along with Dee Dee to Jess and Jeff's unpredictable world of spaced out sounds.
