Holy F–k, ‘LP’ (Young Turks/ Beggars Group)
Holy Fuck play the sort of id-gripping dance rock that’s best experienced in person — and not just because the pulsing, kraut-rock-meets-D.C. go-go jams sound massive on a club PA. Eschewing laptops, programming, and rehearsals, HF improvise electronic music on (mostly) analog sources, including 35-millimeter film projectors and ancient keyboards. Luckily, their second album, mixed by Broken Social Scene’s Dave Newfeld and Girls Against Boys’ Eli Janney from a variety of studio sessions, retains the raw energy of the live show, even without the visual barrage.
