De Lux – Oh man, the future (Innovative Leisure)

A genius turn from the LA duo which takes two crucial elements of the vintage Talking Heads sound and fuses them with an authentic 21st century anxiety.

Those elements are the relentless pulse bass of Tina Weymouth.

And the declamatory, talking-loudly-to-myself vocals of David Byrne.

World War 4. US Civil War 2024. No money. Everything is free.

They suggest a scenario in which dancing to a four to the floor disco beat can alleviate this state of affairs. Not a solution maybe but a way to soothe your mind and body.

You might even feel like embracing an uncertain future if the soundtrack is as brilliant as this.
