Emperor Penguin Discography of CDs


Show only: Original Artist (4)Contributed To (2)

Extreme Gaming Extreme Gaming CD (1999)
CD Check Availability  Details
Emperor Penguin music CDs On Extreme Gaming, their second album within a year, the prolific Emperor Penguin returns with more DIY electro-funk. Over the course of 18 songs, the duo incorporates the cheesiest of synths, robotic beats, and witty samples into a fun and eclectic -- if somewhat long -- romp through electronic music's campy side. Emperor Penguin's sense of humor runs riot throughout Extreme Gaming (though the album's title certainly gives fair warning), particularly on songs like the faux-majestic space capades of "Phantom of the Gay Opera" and "Cop Show," which lovingly sends up the synth-driven theme songs of '70s shows like "CHiPs" and "The Rockford Files." At times, the overt silliness threatens to overshadow some of the group's better moments, like the spooky trip-hop of "My Lunar Rover," the Teutonic-tinged "Werkout," and the album's prettiest track, "Streets and Stars," which pits a naive acoustic guitar melody against synth strings and a muffled, mechanical beat. For the most part, though, Extreme Gaming's knowing cheesiness is a lot of fun, especially on tracks like "Federation Funk," "Glamour Hammer," and "Original Tracks," which show off Emperor Penguin's trademark bubbling synths and canned beats. "CompuFunc" throws cool Bruce Haack and Lucia Pamela samples into the mix, ...

Damn! Damn! CD (2001)

Emperor Penguin songs An interesting four-track EP from the enigmatic Emperor Penguin, Damn features all the focused quirks you've come to expect from the Chicago duo. From the thumping vocoder-dominated "Disco Party in the Castle of Love (Tonight)," a longtime staple of their live shows, to the bluesy laid-back groove of "Wizard Dude," Emperor Penguin provides experimentation that finds a happy medium between overreaching ambitiousness and pedestrian recycling. Alternately ominous and expansive, the driving Gary Numan-inspired "Echoes of Pumford" fits nicely beside the deep, almost dub-reggae, groove of "Neighborhood Watch (We ...
Mysterious Pony Mysterious Pony CD
CD Check Availability  Details
Emperor Penguin CD discography Hot on the heels of Extreme Gaming comes Mysterious Pony, Emperor Penguin's third album within two years. Fortunately, the group's musical development is right on track with their prolific release schedule; Mysterious Pony works the kinks out of the group's synths-n-samples sound while keeping the funk. Much of the album focuses on Emperor Penguin's obsessive love for late-'60s and early-'70s easy listening, and swank cuts like "Chill or Be Chilled" and the excellently named "Burnt Sienna and Avocado" mix just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek humor into the ...

Emperor Penguin albums The straightforwardly-named My Pal God Holiday Record 2 delivers just what the title promises: more Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years-inspired tracks from My Pal God artists such as the Joshua Falken Trio, Oxes, the French Kicks, and Atombombpocketknife. Emperor Penguin contributes what might be the world's first electro-inspired holiday tune, "Erotic Xmas (Home for the Holograms)," while Neutrino deliver a surf-styled instrumental medley of "Island of Misfit Toys/Little Drummer Boy." Indie rock carols such as Pedal's "On Xmas Day," Camellia Lane's "Christmas," and Port Vale's "The Snowmen" abound; ...
