WHY THEM? With one eye on creating hazy psychedelic soundshapes and the other on pinning said shapes to the floor four at a time with whumping crunk underpinnings, this Constitution State electro-crew creates the perfect soundtrack to cruising aimlessly after the afterparty, trying to find more trouble to get into. Standout tracks like “Sophisticated Thighs” roll out with a sleazy Iggy Pop vocal nuance, but then chop the mood up with glitchy tension in a way that both frustrates and titillates.

BONUS BIT! The video for “Sophisticated Thighs,” directed by Jimi Patterson, begins with the standard white-light-exposure-and-a-model shtick you might expect from a synth-laden tune, only to turn the whole thing disturbingly bloody — with goats.
