Mouse On Mars – “WOW” – [Monkeytown Records]

With 10 releases under their belt, this German duo has explored a lot within their realm as IDM masters, but managed to maintain their particular flavor of humor and unpredictability throughout. WOW takes a distinctly club focus, with plenty of housey bouncy and dipping deep in the acid vial to pull out some heavy, dripping bass. While definitely dabbling in some dubstep wommom, they don’t rely too gratuitously on that, maintaining their subtle giltch sound and playful intelligence. Good production that leans more towards lush than clean per se, necessarily so in order to catch all the nuanced sound layering of crunch and glitter alike. Conceptualized and recorded in just a few weeks, it indeed reeks of spontaneity, like sea monkeys on pogo sticks in a videogame fairyland.
