Timez Are Weird These Days
Critical Mass
Release Date: July 19, 2011
Label: Warner Bros.

by Mikael Wood

You'd better believe anything Theophilus London says about "these days": With contributions from various of-the-moment producers (TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, Santigold's John Hill), the Brooklyn boho's major-label debut is a painfully hip slice of style-mag electro-soul. London provides a hint of heart beneath the sleek surface on the disarmingly plaintive "Why Even Try," featuring Sara Quin of Tegan & Sara. But it's pretty rich hearing this unabashed exhibitionist use "Girls Girls $" to make an example of a lady who "got drunk and showed her pussy on World Star."
