Loping polyrhythms; chilly (even chintzy) digital synthesizers; brittle electronic percussion; and an overwhelming sense of melancholy, hypnotic and all-consuming. DJ Lycox’s “Underground” is one of the record’s standouts. A sawtooth midrange synth and a dreamier, pan-flute-like lead circle each other warily; the drums lash out in short, sullen bursts. Over it all, the group’s name is barked out over and over, the world’s gruffest ident, sounding pained but defiant.
