MP3 Exclusive! The Star Fighter Pilot – “The Invisible Invasion”

So a couple of weeks ago I made a cheeky remark on Twitter about wanting a song about robot pigs in flying cars for my birthday (which was last Tuesday, in case anyone’s interested). I’m not sure why that particular fixation, but I have noticed in recent months that a lot of the music we’re buying is falling into one particular folky, American, indie-rock niche originally initiated (as The Ledge rightfully pointed out) by Granddaddy.  This is not to take anything away from the likes of Port O’Brien, Fleet Foxes, Phosphorescent, Bon Iver or anyone else – but I really wanted to hear something a little different.

In any case, the mantle was duly taken up by Martin from Manchester’s very own rather delightful electro-pop outfit, The Star Fighter Pilot. He promised a bleepy, electronic song about robot pigs in flying cars, and, considering the ludicrous premise, I have to say I’m more than impressed with the result, in fact. If you like what you hear, he’s playing at an In The City showcase at The Attic on October 7.

Here’s the song:
