This Denver-based duo, founded by best pals Craig and Andy, make danceable avant-pop music. While they’ve definitely got some Animal Collective vocal influences, their blissful, pounding drum (machine) beats call more to mind the visceral thrill of Sleigh Bells, and when singer Andy R isn’t bellowing, I’m reminded of the Dismemberment Plan’s Travis Morrison’s deadpan delivery. Throw in guitars that range from shoegaze to post-punk, and you’ve got one energetic and enjoyable hodgepodge.
