Felix da Housecat Virgo Blaktro & the Movie Disco

Chicago don Felix da Housecat has always grasped the fantasy of clubs and club music. His 2002 album, Kittenz and Thee Glitz, soundtracked a Berlin/Studio 54-style fantasy, and he’s kept that same dirty, electronic-disco feel here, though he also draws on soul and funk masters like Prince and Parliament and contemporaries like Daft Punk for a sound that’s simultaneously retro and modern–and sexy (the lead single is, after all, entitled “Something 4 Porno”). The tracks work well enough individually, but this is definitely an album, a coherent statement that progresses from song to song, despite the occasional misstep (the tedious “Radio”). Now someone just needs to make the movie to match the music.
