When the question was posed, “Why is Lady GaGa so poppy and catchy?” after watching the video for GaGa’s new music video “Bad Romance.” The first response to this question was “The Illuminati, dude.” Being caught a little off guard by this response, I started to think about it.

This made me start to question reality: Is GaGa a secret agent of the Illuminati, set to take over the world with her blend of cutting edge pop music, fashion and outlandish personal style? Is the New World Order going to take us over with dance? Will we all be decked out in Alexander McQueen gear? When these additional questions were asked I got a surprising vote of confidence for the Illuminati and the NWO.

Please debate the questions above.

Rooftops Press Photo 1 - Courtesy Paul Turpin Rooftops’ debut album “A Forest Of Polarity” (CP014) will be released on November 17th, 2009 on Clickpop Records. With Drew Fitchette, Mark Detrick, and Jonathan McIntyre on guitars and Wendelin Wohlgemuth on drums, Rooftops craft intricate, mathy pop rock with dense counterpoint and sparse vocals. However, the band’s tapped notes, and complex, cross accentuated rhythms are balanced by emotive melodies and moments of delicate beauty. If you need a comparison, imagine the complex power of Don Caballero or Battles, but with the emotional tug of Explosions In The Sky or Mono. AFP expands on the bands intricate math rock sound by adding layers of acoustic guitars, vocals, horns, strings and percussion.

Five brand new songs from “A Forest Of Polarity” are now streaming on the bands Myspace page that you can find at: www.myspace.com/rftps
