The LadybiRdS' debut LP may just be the best powderpuff dance pop side project yet. Gym Class Heroes keyboardist Tyler Pursel teamed up with former bandmate Teeter Sperber of Ley Royal Scam (hence the capitalized LRS in LadybiRdS). Throw in guest vocals from Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids, Max Bemis of Say Anything, Justin Johnson from The Danger O's and Neil Sabatino of Fairmont and you've got the infectious sugar-sugar dance confection "Regional Community Theater," out this fall. Tyler provides the Atari-style hooks (listen to "Shark Party"...you really can picture the pixelated kung fu) while Teeter provides the heart and charm with chirpy vocals. "I only sing because, because you told me that I can't," she sings on "Oh No! The Unicorns are Knife Fighting Again." I don't know. You'll have to check it out yourself.
