From a patchy album, another excellent single. This is less wired than
previous efforts - instead of glitches, a lovely ambient haze of poppy
beats, squelchy synths and hypnotic repetitions.
Given that LCD's breakthrough came with the sublimely stupid Daft Punk Is Playing At My House, it's hardly shocking that this should lean so heavily
towards the Royksopp / Daft Punk end of dance. In fact, like
The Postal Service, we might as well call this indie as dance:
"Everybody makes mistakes / But I feel all right when I come undone," yelps
James Murphy against a melodic wooze as much mid-period Magnetic
Fields as Paul Oakenfold.
Whatever, this is catchy and satisfying as you could wish: quality pop,
perfectly recorded. Long term, it's probably quite forgettable - but then,
all the best things are. Some decent remixes too.
