EDITORS’ NOTES

DJs Armand Van Helden and A-Trak have been spiking EDM's punch bowl as Duck Sauce since 2009, intoxicating revelers with party-hearty bangers like the disco-sampling "aNYway" and the sinfully catchy "Barbra Streisand." For their long-awaited debut full-length, Quack, the duo's puckish abandon is in full swing. Joining the above tracks is the 2013 earworm "It's You," here in all its quizzically catchy alien hoedown glory. The duo's record collection is as deep as their sense of humor is broad: "Radio Stereo" is a canny reworking of The Members' 1982 postpunk sing-along "Radio," while "NRG" samples Melissa Manchester's "Energy" for its ecstatic jazzercise vibe. In between the unapologetically exuberant beats are various sketches and snippets (sci-fi dialogue, prank calls, bird noises), which lend the album a retro variety-show vibe, like an EDM American Bandstand hosted by Foghorn Leghorn.
