Sounds From Nowheresville (Bonus Tracks, Explicit)
Released: Mar 2012
The bratty, fizzy coed English duo behind magnificent earworm "That's Not My Name" is back with even brattier, fizzier sullen-outsider jock jams. The gleefully schizo Sounds From Nowheresville revels in everything from M83 electro triumphalism to Santigold-style reggae pop to tart party-rap taunts to angst-y ballads, all shot through with a brisk air of absurdism. Try "Guggenheim," a bad-romance fable that vaguely evokes Dusty Springfield before launching into an enormous, bewildering, cowbell-wielding chorus of "I'm gonna play my bass at the Guggenheim." Yeah, go ahead.
