EDITORS’ NOTES

This artfully discombobulated quintet evoke the ecstatic vitality of experimentalists like Melt-Banana and Deerhoof on their fifth album. Intense pleasure-pushing is a theme both sonic and lyrical: On “Multibeast TV,” lead vocalist Kassie Carlson barks “Chocolate! Cinnamon! Sugar! Eat it!” over the sort of hard, in-the-pocket leftfield funk DFA is known for. Multipart ramshackle raves like “Grass Shack" find the New York crew blending tough tribal rhythms with post-punk derangement and loads of cowbell. The power-poetics and wild beats reach a shuddering, Beefheart-ian climax in "Doll Face on the Calico Highway."
