Lali Puna, 'Our Inventions' (Morr)

6
Our Inventions
Critical Mass
Label: Morr Music

by Larry Fitzmaurice

Despite an early co-sign from Radiohead's Colin Greenwood, this German glitch-pop outfit has spent the past decade in obscurity, garnering even less notice than original member Markus Acher's previous group, the Notwist. On Lali Puna's first album in six years, the quartet dials back the sometimes-abrasive motorik of 2004's Faking the Books in favor of a smoother, cosmopolitan coffee-shop sound. The results range from sublime ("Remember") to so-so ("Safe Tomorrow"), while the beat-broken "Move On" and the oscillating breakdown of "Future Tense" keep things inventive.
