Simian Mobile Disco - Tits & Acid

A white-label affair on a much more aggro tip than 2005’s “The Count,” this two-track release preserves the SMD’s propensity for high-energy jack tracks that rip new fissures in the earth with the electricity of their expansive movements. “Tits & Acid” could be used to hammer out rivets for avant-garde factory designs, or it could soundtrack your next basement face-melter. You decide. “Animal House” sounds almost sedate in comparison, but keeps the shuffling beat moving in their favor—now proceeding at a tempo that allows for some texture to be explored, rather than merely rifled-through. Play this one loud.
