Meanderthals, 'Desire Lines' (Smalltown Supersound)

Critical Mass
Label:

by SPIN Staff

After mucking about for more than a decade, spacey Norwegian producer Rune Lindbæk teams up with London disco pranksters the Idjut Boys to create this surprisingly focused debut, and the results are nothing less than total sun-soaked beatitude. Opener "Kunst Or Ars," all breezy guitars and afternoon delights, is their most overt ode to Balearic -- that laid-back, Ibiza-born, house-music answer to Jimmy Buffett. But as the trio folds in steel drums, bottomless dubs, stoner guitars, pianos, and thicker bass, they wander into more genreless terrain; the handclap propulsion of "Andromeda" and the darker "Lasaron Highway" evoke particularly sumptuous horizons.,
