Sonic Reducer

My Dear Disco Dancethink LP · Kevin Rudolf In The City · Ladyfinger (ne) Dusk

My Dear Disco is addicted to dance-ahol. It can't just take a shot of ethereal disco hooks and shoot some pool with friends. No, it grabs a bottle of Dance Punk-brand whiskey and gulps it down before anyone can tell the Ann Arbor septet to slow down. Creative flourishes like funk guitar and time signature free-for-alls keep the album from becoming too superficial. But at the end of the day, the synth jams aren't especially cerebral. Dancethink LP belongs in a club, not a living room. If you're going to listen to it sans-party, crank the volume and enjoy a cocktail with this collection of hyperactive tracks. (SM)
