From Lisbon, Portugal comes the synth-pop, beat-cruising sounds of Thunder & Co, a duo have just recently released their 10-track debut record Nociceptor, and I have to say it is pretty damn good.

The meaning of ‘Nociceptor’ is a sensory receptor for painful stimuli, the ones responsible for letting us experience hurt. Thunder & Co has noted that the tracks featured on this album were written under the influence of excited and fully functioning nociceptors.

Go pick up a copy of Nociceptor from iTunes.
