In Our Heads expands on that notion, with background sounds of a baby cooing, children chanting and playground noises filling out the music. The opening track, "Motion Sickness" introduces the collection with a pulsing beat intro until vocal harmonies reminisce about "Remember when we first heard the wall of sound?" There's a dreamy spaced groove in "Look At Where We Are" and an enchanting swirl of synth layers for "Flutes." "Night and Day"sets up electronic blips and pops around soulful vocals that reference "jibber jabber" while asking, "Do I look like a rapper?" While nothing immediately jumps out being as infectious as the three songs mentioned above, the eleven new ones are a welcome addition to any party playlist.
Listen to In Our Heads until June 11th at the link here and enjoy the videos from the others below. Plus, I recently met the band's Al Doyle (also of the late great LCD Soundsystem, in photo above on the left) during a recent NYC stop with his new project, New Build.
