Discodeine
Critical Mass
Release Date: February 22, 2011
Label: Dirty

by Spencer Kornhaber

French beatmakers Pilooski and Pentile have courted indie-rock acceptance by remixing LCD Soundsystem and Tame Impala, but compared to the crossover attempts of their DJ-duo countrymen -- Daft Punk, Justice -- their Discodeine debut is surprisingly devoid of frothy sensationalism. The songs' analog percussive pecks and synth squirts occasionally cohere like four-on-the-floor Art of Noise collages; and then, too often, they just hang. Cinematic dread appears when Jarvis Cocker plays a grooving ghoul over the filthy funk of "Synchronize," but too many of Discodeine's tracks settle for an orderly, drama-free dance floor.
