On the best track here, "Synthesise," Simian Mobile Disco take your basic acid-techno groove and allow it to spiral totally out of control. The rest of the English duo's sophomore effort is equally delicious. Plus, it's packed with hipster cameos, including Jamie Lidell, the Gossip's Beth Ditto and Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip. In all honesty, though, S.M.D. truly thrive when they're going it alone, as they do on "Synthesise" and the killer "10,000 Horses Can't Be Wrong." Now that's jam.
