Gloss Drop

Genre: Rock; Music Label: Warp

The New York dancerockers’ arsenal yields doublebarreled thrills: songs made to steam up discotheques and stir up the mosh pit. Gloss Drop, with its syncopated beats and chiming new-wave keyboards, dials up the warmth from their math-y, angular debut and injects far more humanity than most dance records allow. Gary Numan even shows up to teach the kids how cyberfunk used to be done, with infectious, invigorating results. B+
