Telepathe, 'Dance Mother' (IAMSOUND)

6
Dance Mother
Critical Mass
Label: IAMSOUND

by Shannon Zimmerman

Conjuring a chillier Bananarama transplanted to Brooklyn, this female duo's debut album is the latest intriguing art-pop indulgence produced by TV on the Radio's David Sitek (Celebration, ScarlettJohansson). "So Fine" borrows a title from ELO and kitschy, sequenced rhythms from New Order, and "Devil's Trident" laces portentous spoken words through skittering disco beats, while meticulously arranged seven-minute epic "Trilogy: Breath of Life, Crimes and Killings, Threads and Knives" nearly lives up to the title's prog-rock promise. Goofy if not guileless, Telepathe seem intentionally designed as a guilty pleasure.
