7 Sweet Summer Albums, from Deerhunter to Quadron

June 20, 2013

Neon Neon
Praxis Makes Perfect
LEX
Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip return with music of ’80s dance music-sized portions, with soothing vocals and shimmering melodies. A joyous record that goes by faster than a Lamborghini, the album features Asia Argento, Cate Le Bon, Josh Klinghoffer, and follows Neon Neon’s 2008 debut, Stainless Style. Neon Neon’s use of chunky ’80s dance grooves, period synths, and drum machines borders on parody, but the music, inspired by left-wing activist and Doctor Zhivago author Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, offers an exuberant journey through electronic-pop craft. From the Bowie-esque “The Jaguar” to the sweetly hilarious “Dr. Zhivago,” the zippy “Shopping,” and ethereal Kraftwerk-ian closer “Ciao Feltrinelli,” Neon Neon makes everything aglow anew.
