No one does propulsive agit-pop quite like the British. In the tradition of Gang of Four and the Fall, Prinzhorn Dance School set fierce lyrical jeremiads to jittery guitar and compellingly herky-jerk drum and bass patterns. Clay Class, Tobin Prinz and Suzi Horn's undiluted follow-up to their self-titled 2007 debut, is out January 31 on DFA, and the album's "Usurper" fits perfectly alongside the rest of that label's rhythmically charged roster. Get mad. Get funky.
