MSTRKRFT – Click Click (ft. E-40)
Last year, “Vuvuvu” and “Bounce” had MSTRKRFT fans aching for the rest of the new album. This MSTRKFRT has listened to the album and is sort of disappointed. Fist of God may not be what I hoped it would be, but it’s not bad by any means. It still has some bangers in there. “Click Click” is a great proof of that. I could have done without the E-40 feature, or maybe E could have just picked it up a bit. But at the end of the day, “Click Click” and the rest of Fist of God will make for hot, sweaty fun on the floor.
Simian Mobile Disco – Synthesise
After “Click Click,” Simian Mobile Disco’s new joint, “Synthesise” sounds sort of tame — because it is pretty tame. It’s definitely no “Hustler” or “I Believe,” but as Pitchfork points out: “If Justice are blog house’s Daft Punk, then SMD are looking more and more like its Chemical Brothers.” Word, my oh-so-elloquent brethren, word.
