Alex Anwandter is no newb.  He went solo in 2010, leaving his band Teleradio Donoso, and releasing his first LP.  In 2012 he released Rebeldes, and after a buzz-creating show at SXSW he has possessed my mind (and body).  It’s hard not to dance to the infectiously 80s single Como Puedes Vivir Contigo Mismo? (How can you live with yourself?).  It’s accompanying video is a campy homage to Paris is Burning that with its mediocre dance moves and eleganza-lacking drag is perfectly charming and hilarious.  When it comes to Pop records, this is exactly what I’m looking for; someone with style (and a queer sensibility), successfully appropriated 80s Electro-Pop, striking melodies, and danceability with depth.
