Trouble by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
Play on Rhapsody
Released:
Label: Casablanca
Like Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, The 2 Bears and SBTRKT, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs -- aka Oxford, England’s Orlando Higginbottom -- walk the knife’s edge between ebullient pop and classic club styles like deep house and U.K. garage, and his debut album is an appropriately dizzying display of balance. Track after track, his melodies are as catchy (and as fetching) as they come, rendered in a quavering falsetto and nestled in a bed of ruffled synths. His supple, bass-heavy grooves, imbued with the perfect sense of swing, distill dance-music history into something irresistibly now.
