On their fourth album, Simian Mobile Disco leave behind their peppier electro-pop leanings to dig deep into a mostly instrumental set of moody, melodic house and techno. Their analog setup yields a rich, throbbing sound that occasionally nods to late '80s dancefloors, but they're less concerned with retro shtick than enveloping, immersive grooves that seem to stop time itself. "Put Your Hands Together" and "Your Love Ain't Fair" capture the club at its sweatiest (and swooningest); "Cerulean" and "Interference" prove SMD's mastery of their machines.
