Magic Hour (Explicit)

Magic Hour by Scissor Sisters
Released: May 2012
Label: Casablanca
If 2010's Night Work was an examination of disco history's dark underbelly, then Scissor Sisters' fourth album is a frenetic romp through the possible futures of disco-fried dance-pop. Magic Hour zigs from midriff-baring, '90s throwback beats ("Self Control") to kuduro-laced sass ("Keep Your Shoes"). They counter flirtations with mainstream dance-pop with firm commitments to the queer at the album's center, with the drag-fabulous "Let's Have a Kiki" and the Azealia Banks-featuring "Shady Love." Like good neo-futurists, they lace it all with a mood somewhere between joy and melancholy.
