Men Without Pants, 'Naturally' (Expansion Team)

Naturally
Critical Mass
Label: Expansion Team

by Josh Modell

Blues Explosion's Russell Simins and beat whiz Dan the Automator (Gorillaz, Hand- some Boy Modeling School, Deltron 3030) couldn't have picked a better name -- their sex-dappled blues-rocktronica suggests frequent pantslessness. Simins is at the helm, providing vocals, guitars, and drums on tracks both sleazy-slinky ("Superfine")and bare-bones garage-y ("Double Life"). The Automator adds sample splashes and atmosphere -- "Let's Meet in Real Life" sounds like a rock version of a Dr. Octagon instrumental -- and the duo is joined by intriguing guests including Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner and Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda. It's all blatantly unsubtle, but also raucously fun.
