Watching Synth Britannia that Kevin posted got me thinking about Nick from Lazer Crystal because he has a tremendous synth collection and is such a real deal dude like those British and German pioneers.
Lazer Crystal is an excellent electronic group out of Chicago. They are currently on tour in Europe and Thrill Jockey is putting out their records you can buy them here.
Here is the video for Love Rhombus,
They got a great write up in the Chicago Reader which you can read here.
