OUT OF THE LOOP, 2001/ 14-tracks/ KINDERCORE
The Brooklyn-based I Am the World Trade Center is essentially Daniel Geller, co-founder of the indie pop Kindercore label and onetime member of the now-defunct band Kincaid. Geller, who has also remixed tracks by Olivia Tremor Control and Ladybug Transistor, recorded, sequenced, and mixed the entire album on his laptop, with Amy Dykes providing Mascott-ish vocals to the pulsating bounces and beats. The result is the lo-fi electro debut Out of the Loop, a 14-track pop pastiche full of lopsided beats and reverie influenced by acts such as St. Etienne, New Order, and most notably the Detroit-based new wavers in Godzuki, among others. I Am the World Trade Center's first long-player is a smashing success that avoids sounding too retro, as Geller's beats sound readymade for roller discos and bedrooms alike. Dance and dream your life away to highlights like "Holland Tunnel," "September," and "Sounds So Crazy."

TIGHT CONNECTION, 2002/ 11-tracks/ KINDERCORE
Dan Geller and significant other Amy Dykes braved much hate mail and personal doubt before releasing the follow-up to 2001's "Out of the Loop." Having innocently chosen their name as a geographic reference to where they began and partially as a metaphor for their relationship, there was much doubt after September 11 as to whether they would remain I Am the World Trade Center. After smartly opting to keep the tag, their next disc makes no reference -- aesthetically or otherwise -- to the events surrounding the attacks. Sticking close to the synth pop-influenced material of their debut, the album sports noticeably higher fidelity (although Geller still does much of his production work on a laptop), catchier tunes, and an improved illustration of Dykes' vocals. Vocoder vocals ("The Postcard"), re-grooved funk loops ("Dancing Alone"), and nouveau tech-pop ("Believe in Me") are all effectively roped into this relatively short outing (all 11 tracks coming in at a total of just under 37 minutes). Covers such as the the Stone Roses' "Shoot You Down" and Blondie's "Call Me" are further indicators of the couple's keenly mixed affinities for both classic Brit-pop and new wave bubblegum.

THE COVER UP, 2004/ 12-tracks/ GAMMON
Already having to deal with the backlash of the band's name, I Am the World Trade Center faced further troubles before the release of its third record: the closing of its record label (Kindercore, co-founded by IATWTC's Dan Geller) and the romantic break-up of Geller and vocalist Amy Dykes. Surprisingly, The Cover Up still sounds upbeat and bright, even when the duo shifts toward the colder, robotic side of electro-pop. The warmer feeling can mostly be attributed to Dykes, who's more on par with new wave heroes Blondie than the monotone of Ladytron and Adult. Geller sometimes steps away from the laptop just long enough to add his own vocals, interacting with Dykes on their cover of the Jam's "Going Underground" and the guitar-led "Different Stories." Although some of the tracks seem like replicas of their previous album and Dykes' voice sometimes falls flat, The Cover Up makes up for that with the attitude that nonstop dance music can save the day.

please understand that unforeseen rigors of the post office may -rarely- result in some unfortunate cracks
for which I cannot be held responsible for)


Regarding the artist: Taking more of a non-traditional approach to writing and producing their own songs, the New York two piece I Am the World Trade Center (named prior to 9/11) records all their samples and loops on laptop computer. On top of Amy Dykes' melodic vocals, the band gives props to St. Etienne, the Stone Roses, Fatboy Slim and Cornershop as major inspirations to their sound, all of which can be heard on their recording debut (the Christmas Two compilation, courtesy of Kindercore Records). Out of the Loop, the duo's proper debut album, was issued in summer 2001 and their follow-up Tight Connection appeared in 2002. Two years later, the band recorded The Cover Up, but while touring the East Coast in support of the album and three weeks shy of its release date, Dykes fell ill with Hodgkin's lymphoma. I Am the World Trade Center immediately went on hiatus so Dykes could make a proper recovery.
