‘s jams are little indie electro wonders, full of the sizzle of weird synthesizers and the cooly detached vocals of leader Liz Enthusiasm. There’s a name. This is the sort of music that we wish our local KISS-FM Top 40/dance outlet would play, since it’s roughly 3000 times catchier than Chris Brown’s “Kiss Kiss.” It’s not surprising that Liz names Duran Duran’s first two albums as her favorites. The band also features a dude known as the “Other Sean T Drinkwater,” and lists the Atari 2600 and “bright colors” as principal influences. We can get behind this. — Thomas Rooker White

Worst fanboy/fangirl experience…

I remember the weird ones better than I remember the bad ones. The most random one I think was getting recognized while trying on clothes in the aisle of my favorite thrift store. (They don’t have dressing rooms there. It was a little awkward.)

Favorite music venue/city…
I think my favorite show ever was in Stockholm. It was pretty surreal. They really like their synths over there.

Vegetarian, vegan or carnivore…
Vegetarian.

Actor/actress you most want to hump…
I love Crispin Glover, although I don’t think I’d necessarily like to hump him. Maybe just hold hands or something.

Favorite record of all time…
Duran Duran’s first album. Followed closely by Rio.

Favorite movie of all time…

Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure

Favorite TV show of all time…
“Arrested Development.” I was so sad when that went away.

Beverages you request on your rider…
Something that’s not beer. I hate it when a club is cheap and only gives you drink tickets that are good for beer! I don’t like beer. At all. Neither do the boys, which I think officially qualifies us as “wimpiest band ever.”

Lately I’ll stick to gin & grapefruit. The grapefruit is good when you’re on tour because you need that extra boost of vitamin C. I just have to be careful to pace myself, otherwise I get a little too tipsy when I try to sing. I learned my lesson after seeing some pretty bad YouTube videos.

First car…
I have never owned a car. I hate driving, and you don’t really need one in Boston.

Guiltiest Pleasure – thing you watch, read, listen to – that no one knows about…
I have a lot of guilty pleasures. Really bad cheap champagne, KFC mac-n-cheese, and Cosmo, to name just a few. I’m not really secretive about them, though. You just have to be unapologetic about stuff like that.
