The title of this English electro-pop duo’s second album refers to programmer Andy Barlow and singer Louise Rhodes’ dislike of electronica’s hallmark: a metronomic, foursquare beat. Accordingly, Lamb craft their music quirkily, freighting it with more nuance, musical and emotional, than most techno has. Yet given Lamb’s aversion to that primal dance beat, it’s ironic that Fear of Four’s most satisfying moment comes when the song ”Fly” suddenly shifts into a pounding, joyfully unsophisticated whomp of a breakbeat rhythm.
