    Dangerous Boys Club – “Pris” – [Dais]

    dbclub
    I was a fan of Portlander Mac Mann’s keyboards in Get Hustle,
    that continues in his latest project. He just squeezes more
    sweat out of them than most white-glove synth projects. He
    is by no means alone here, Aaron Montaigne remains at his
    side singing rogue romantic in some dirty neon haze. Hey
    maybe that’s the key to Mann, perhaps he records with a fog
    machine on? (They nearly admit as much on the excellent track
    “Transilvania”!) But this is no float fest, bassist Mark Burden
    makes sure to keep the panic button down (his Glass Candy
    roots are appreciated!). Also helping with the fantastic filth
    is Sam Ott whose electronic drums at times feel like IED’s
    planted underfoot. Dance to this stuff…if you dare. Well,
    “Heaven” is a drum-free disembodied voice cloud but cuts like
    “Electric” and “Come Forth By Night” definitely pack more
    clamour with their amour. “Guillotine” will turn heads,
    Montaigne’s voice a blurry whispering blade at the end
    of a grimey crime. “Possess Me!” is the most naked rock
    number, Burden pushing the song like a punk son of Chris
    Squire. And it’s an excellent example of the whirlwind
    of electronics that Mann and Ott can whip up. Montaigne’s
    voice is almost too pure here versus the musical debasement
    going on. Even if it is a Boys Club (band name, ehh) they
    do let Kaetlin Kennedy in at the end to good effect.
