Bodega Girls

Screw the Ides of March — beware Bodega Girls

Et Tu Bootay–licious
When music writers start playing the futures game, it's usually a good idea to take our prognostications with a grain of salt. That said, if there's one wager you can bet the house on this year, it's that Boston's Bodega Girls will spend 2011 on a giant winning streak, whether they like it or not. Lock it up.

Review of Zonoscope by Cut Copy

Cut Copy | Zonoscope

Modular (2011)
The most difficult thing about releasing a near-perfect album has to be the follow-up. People flipped when Cut Copy dropped 2008's In Ghost Colours , which saw the Aussie dance trio ramping up the formula of their debut LP with unrelenting momentum, strobe-light synths, and a shitload of robot voices.

Hot Chip | One Life Stand

Astralwerks (2010)
Four albums into a career that appeared to begin as an art-school goof, Hot Chip look more likely than any of their peers to ascend one day to the intellectual electro-pop heights of Pet Shop Boys or Scritti Politti.

Gus Gus | 24-7

Kompact (2009)
Letting the music take control is a primary tenet of the dance-floor ethos — but that's only because dance music is by nature submissive. Even at its most sonically rich, dance music remains a utility, and even when it demands your attention, it does so in service to your good times.

Review: Michael Jackson | Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix

Epic (1997)
Personally, I'm fascinated by Michael Jackson, who may be the only truly deviant artist in modern pop: who would you really find scarier in a dark alley, him or Marilyn Manson?

All at once

N.A.S.A.’s gang bangers might be a little much
If nothing else, the release of The Spirit of Apollo (Anti-) a few weeks ago by the intercontinental hip-hop/baile/other duo of N.A.S.A. (that’s North America/South America) makes an encouraging, if not actually uttered, statement.

Review: Animal Collective, Merriweather Post Pavilion

Domino (2009)
Animal Collective began as a band of fringe weirdos, but over time they've dropped the freak from their folk.
