Uncanney Valley

Uncanney Valley by The Dismemberment Plan
Released: Oct 2013
Label: PTKF
The Dismemberment Plan's most challenging record is also their poppiest. After a 10-year hiatus, the genre-defying D.C. legends make their first attempt to play it straight, or as frontman Travis Morrison put it, to write songs that are actually coverable. These include one of indie music's most open love songs ("Lookin'"), good-hearted dance grooves for geeks ("Mexico City Christmas," "Let's Just Go to the Dogs Tonight") and some show-stopping synth-rock anthems ("Living in Song," "Go and Get It"). This may be their squarest album yet, but it's still one of their best.
