DATA SELECT PARTY
HANGING OUT WITH HUMANS
FEAR AND RECORDS

More like late to the party. Londoners DSP play that airless, rigid Mathrock made semi-popular after Foals started showing up on Jo Whiley. The seasick metronomic musicianship is assured and satisfyingly produced, with the bass a physical foil to the pallid, tip-tap ersatz-Foals fret work and what they lack in infectious melodies, they make up in infectious disco energy. But as is fast becoming a trend in the latter part of the decade, this is Post punk only in style, not in spirit or intent, bearing none of the underlying nerd neurosis, cold modernity and most vitally the intellectual provocation of their brain-itchy forefathers. Less concerned with Brecht-ian discourse than how to unhook a bra with one hand. It’s at this late stage of a tired game that self-conscious chancers arrive, understand nothing about their trade other than it being a means to be fashionable.

4/10
