So there?s Danger Mouse, Modest Mouse, and, of course, Mouse on Mars. What?s up with the infestation of rodent-themed bands? Fortunately, the German electronica duo?s eighth LP Radical Connector is worth more than a nibble. Sexy robot vocals slip and slide all over juicy squeals, raindrop plops, and jungle-thick beats, making MOM sound like the Basement Jaxx on Miracle-Gro. Better bring a Weedwacker to the dance floor.
