What to make of the new Simian Mobile Disco album. There’s that song with Gruff Rhys from Super Furry Animals called “Cream Dream.” There’s help from The Gossip’s Beth Ditto, Yeasayer’s Chris Keating, and then there’s that song with Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip that sounds, well, exactly like a Hot Chip song without the soul. So I might not be ready to Attack Decay Sustain Release myself into a cream dream about this album quite yet, but that’s not to say there aren’t any electro monsters that compare to “Sleep Deprivation” and “I Believe,” two of the finest doses of electronic music created this decade.

“Off the Map” is SMD’s closest try at recreating the magic off of their first album. Jamie Lidell croons on the track, “you can be space, I’ll be the invader,” and the sexual references just continue to fly from this electronic duo.
