!!! (or chk chk chk if you were hoping to say their name out loud) have another tight collection of indie-dance jams, although actually, if you ask me, plenty of these tracks sound like full on 12” club platters. These New Yorkers know what’s up. As If thus comes highly recommended for those who like to move. On Warp Records.

I've been told to not bother writing about records that I'm just going to slag off. We are, after all, a business. But apart from watching a tree sway back in forth in my garden, this is now my only pleasure left in life. I'll guide you through the LP anyway as we've sold a bunch of them already and no-one takes our reviews seriously surely?
'All You Writers' is a squelshy mess, 'Sick Ass Moon' is somewhere between Scissor Sisters and Hot Chip, 'Every Little Bit Counts' has driving percussion leading into a big fun and funky guitar lick that you can imagine soundtracking someone having fun on TV. Just when you think the track has reached the apex of fun it becomes even funner. If it had a tail it would be wagging it.... furiously. Meanwhile 'Freedom 15' starts relatively melancholy which bursts into a chorus which shamelessly rips off some Earth Wind and Fire riff or other. I hate this.
