    from all music

    3Oh!3 is a duo from Boulder, CO (i.e., area code 303), whose style of music includes jokey raps, indie electronica beats, and lots of tomfoolery. Founded in 2004, the duo is comprised of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte, who met while attending the University of Colorado. 3OH!3 made their recording debut in 2007 with a self-titled, independently released album. Their second album, Want (2008), was produced by Matt Squire and released by Photo Finish Records. In addition to their album releases, 3Oh!3 is known for their live performances, including a national series of shows on the 2008 Warped Tour.

    album review

    Ridiculous, obscene, infectious, and obnoxious, 3OH!3's Want is the electro-trash revolution gone horribly wrong, creating a brand-new genre to dread: fratcore hip-hop. If there's any irony to tracks like "I'm Not Your Boyfriend Baby" (sounds like a Lil Jon and Calvin Harris car crash) or "Star Struckk" (starts all chiptunes then goes ringtone rap before turning disco), it's buried so deep it really doesn't matter anymore. It's as if this duo from Boulder, CO, stole all the surface bits of Andrew W.K., Princess Superstar, plus Lady GaGa and created an album that can only be discussed in terms of "Awesome!" or "Sucks!" If you like fat beats lifted from old-school hip-hop, Scott Storch, and Chromeo with slim, lean hooks that won't be leaving the head anytime soon, it's awesome. If you don't care for thin ideas, sophomoric humor, or Warped Tour attitude, it sucks. Spank Rock made this kind of nu-booty music with much more finesse. Still, 3OH!3's Want has enough hooks and laugh-out-loud filth that it's decent, decided junk and good enough for bumpin' uglies on the dancefloor.
