Put the last eight years of Williamsburg micro-genres in a blender— all that electroclash, disco rock, retro glam, and psych-folk—and you’ve got a sense of the charming mess that is this Connecticut-via-Brooklyn duo’s debut. With Flaming Lips producer Dave Friddman putting a smooth, trippy sheen over everything, the best songs burst forth like little you’ve ever heard before.
