This album is overlooked. Fans of LCD, Rapture, Chk Chk Chk etc should get a big kick. Thanks to The Glimmers for putting me on to Out Hud. DJs - try this one out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wImsKpTBuH8.

While I'm pretty sure that the whole "disco-punk" thing has passed by me at light speed, I can safely say that this disc is a classic. What we have here is a wicked marriage of acid house tweaks and thumps, buzzing guitars, and lots of fun wibbly melodies on top. The music happily caroms this way and that, occasionally rising up in screaming dissonance before slamming back into a lock-step groove, only to dissolve a minute later into a cacophony of handclaps and crashes. "This Bum's Paid" drops the tempo briefly for a slightly creepy little interlude, and "The L Train..." has been a mixtape staple for a long time now, a twelve-minute monster bolstered in the last few minutes by some dreamy violin melodies. There's a lot of retro influences at work here, but Out Hud bring it all out in a fresh and vibrant way. Flat-out awesome!
