Upside Down & Inside Out
Label: BMG Rights Management (US) LLC
On Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, the power-poppers met an unlikely foil in MGMT/Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann, who gave them an art-dance makeover with some Prince-ly touches. Fridmann returns here to make every cymbal crash sound like a filing cabinet being thrown out a sixth-story window, with stuttering vocals colliding into each other as if they're flushing down a psychedelic drain. Single "The Writing's on the Wall" rides a double-time hi-hat stutter, while the farting synths and bell-rings of "Bright as Your Eyes" prove that they've got more splashes of color up their sleeve yet.
