Devo, 'Something for Everybody' (Warner Bros.)

7
Something for Everybody
Critical Mass
Label: Warner Bros.

by Doug Brod

On their first album in 20 years, the spud boys return to show dancey electro-pop pretenders how it's done -- syn-drums and all. While name producers Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Sia) and Santi White add a thoroughly postmodern sheen to songs that reference Tased bros and Obama's challenges, others like "Mind Games" and "Later Is Now" seem cryogenically preserved from 1982. And on "What We Do" the band sound like they're biting Gang of Four's "To Hell with Poverty" howls. Woof!
