With this Stateside debut, the Bergen, Norway duo of Fredrik Saroea and Ketil Mosnes bring a singularly warped exuberance to their double-entendre disco pop. On tracks about beastly divas and dancing with Daddy, they combine campy humor, hair-trigger club hooks, and electro-charged rock riffs. The rub, though, comes when the tempo drops -- the album's post-punk brooders tend to kill the buzz, even in their abundant irony. If only more tracks mirrored summer-crush anthem "Computer Camp Love," which sets adolescent hearts thumping over Commodore 64 screens.
