While more worthwhile than Foals' last few albums, this first half of Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost doesn't arouse too much excitement for Part 2.
While much of your enjoyment of Electric Lady Sessions will depend on your enjoyment of American Dream, that material does benefit from the more in-the-moment sound here.
Twisted Crystal is all the zany pop fun of GT Ultra, but set in space and on LSD.
Ought is sounding dancier and more new wave-inspired than ever on new single "These 3 Things." The track is from the Montreal art punks' upcoming third LP, Room Inside the World, out February 16. It'll be the band's Merge Records debut and will follow up their great 2015 album, Sun Coming Down – just listen to it already!
Death from Above slay with a hard rock-inspired direction on their latest album, Outrage! Is Now.

Todd Terje teases toward his beautifully-titled sophomore album Numero Twomero with a lengthy cover of "Maskindans," an obscure piece of '80s minimal synth from fellow Norwegian dance music duo Det Gylne Triangel. Naturally, this new version is a lot brighter and dancier, but it also features new vocal contributions from the original artists themselves. So, credit to Todd for modernizing this hidden gem and introducing it to a wider audience.
