Icy Demons, ‘Miami Ice’ (Obey Your Brain)

Miami Ice closes with “Crittin’ Down to Babba’s,” a rap about an eatery where patrons sip lemonade, fries come with hot sauce, and “the music’s always bumpin’.” Sweet, spicy, and danceable — that’s the template for these fusion tracks created by Man Man and Bablicon members who make up Icy Demons. With creaking carnival synths, bouncy rhythms, and falsetto-babble choruses, the songs on the Chicago group’s third full-length range from tweaked lounge pop to electro-Gypsy stompers, usually served with equal helpings of the breezy and the bizarre.
