EDITORS’ NOTES

With their full-length debut, Toronto’s Death From Above 1979 capitalized on the rock revivalism dominating the early ’00s music press, while anticipating the reign of bass-bin-rattling dance music over the rest of the decade. In-the-red assaults like “Turn It Out” and “Pull Out” highlighted bassist Jesse Keeler and drummer/vocalist Sebastien Grainger’s post-hardcore pedigree, but with the synth-sweetened groove of “Romantic Rights” and the cowbell-clanking “Sexy Results,” the duo sculpted their marble-slab heaviness into deviously dissonant disco.
