***With Righteous Signals / Sour Dudes, JOE and LACHLANN have written a new album which leaps and bounds over their debut Musclemilk, released in 2007 by Adaadat. The dual title is symbolic of the struggle for creative compromise and two pals who are still learning how to work together—they couldn't agree, so they named it twice—it works out. Similarly, the music clashes too, it strikes bargains and agrees to disagree. The album finds progressive rock trying to sit alongside synth-pop and Afro-beat, whilst disco bumps into hardcore, before transcending tropically. There's a lot going on but somehow it makes sense. Album opener "Cruisin" is a reckless, careering 8-bit punk sideswipe, with hollered words and an ardent keyboard line. "Geomancer" is a bubbling brew of stammering beats and coupled vocals. "Stranded In Jurassic Park" tells the tale of buddies chased by dinosaurs into the path of five desert dwelling aggressors over a pulsating call and response track, which shape shifts with every line. The band try their hand at epic balladry with "Glorious Dawn,” whilst "Magic Eye" is a breakneck pop song lost amidst the pogo and guitar wrangle.
