Music to Your Ears

By Mel Minter

World Premiere: Rahim Alhaj’s “Fly Away”

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.
