When you put UNO NYC techno hero Gobby’s debut LP Fashion Lady into iTunes, it comes up with an addendum: “Techno Ass Album.” Which is just about the measure of the first full-length release from the Brooklyn resident, after 2012’s New Hat EP.

With its jerky strut, Fashion Lady is giving a wink that strays just a lil' too close to pervy. New tracks like ‘Lect Horn’ and ‘Krylon Surf Magix’ are titled in code (corporate slogan via darkroom) and veer from zippy BPMs to sleazy low-register noise, while ‘Rashe’ mixes an automated voicemail message (“goodbye!”) with a techno pulse.

When asked for explanation, Gobby sent over the images above: a line-drawing of a Gollum-ish succubus, a tentacle-like fern, and a dude in a gimp mask and shades.

Fashion Lady will be released worldwide on April 23. Stream it for a week in the player above.
