Working Mens Club

Working Men’s Club’s outstanding self-titled debut brings a mixtape feel to songs, as various sounds and styles are hurled in with gleeful eclecticism. A well of early synthpop, from Daniel Miller’s proto-synth act the Normal to post-punk era Simple Minds, early Human League and Pulp, informs everything. Stark electronics are undercut with funkier elements of Detroit techno, acid house squiggles and Italian house pianos to create a danceable sound that’s simultaneously austere and uplifting.
