Cynsin featuring Jackson Blacklock

If Prince, Ima Robot and Kraftwerk sat down for tea and crumpets, Jackson Blacklock would be the host.

Sounds far fetched? Well, not really. Blacklock, one of the founding members of the now disbanded Schrödinger’s Cat (best fucking acapella boy band in the world) ought to be the new poster boy of synth pop happiness. However, pigeon holing his music into that category alone would be a disservice. Working with his friend Rob Huntley, Cynsin the band features expert programming, incredibly catchy tunes and tongue in cheek lyrics. Any one of the songs on their myspace could easily be a top 40 hit.

As one would expect from a former member of Schrödinger’s Cat, Jackon's vox is sexy, solid and is capable of handling funk just as easily as pop (and I know first hand that he's fine with belting out embarrassing Madrigals as well).... and hot damn, that boy is good looking. You've heard me rave about John Pointer (also another S-cat member) before. Well, Jackson is another example of the fine talent that comprised of that group. So, for you Schrödinger’s Cat's nostalgics out there who are waiting anxiously for the next reunion show, think of it this way: Now that the group has performed mitosis, you're getting more cool music at a faster rate. :)

Listen to:
"Robot Fantasy"
"Jealous of Madonna"
