Shout Out Out Out Out, ‘Reintegration Time’ (Normals Welcome)

Shout Out Out Out Out could be long-distance disciples of Brooklyn’s punky mirror-ball tribe DFA. The Edmonton, Alberta six-piece’s 2006 debut, Not Saying/Just Saying, was a Juno Award–nominated disco beast, and standard vocoder vocal turns and cowbell antics aside, their latest boasts a varied collection of Kraftwerkian dance-floor workouts. On cuts like “How Do I Maintain Pt. 1,” the rhythmic interplay gets weighed down by its own excess, but the more expansive clouds of synth exhaust in wordless bookends “Run” and “Reintegration Time” offer more rewarding highs.
