Out Hud Let Us Never Speak of It Again
- Words: Carla Costa
- Label: Kranky
You gotta love this whole "making over disco via a post-punk spit shine" thing, and Out Hud are old pros. Since their first release in 1998, the band has streamlined and tweaked out their sound one track at a time, finally settling on a solid groove with their second LP. Grounded in the amped-up pulse of the high-hat and the split lead female vocals, the album‘s best tracks ("Old Nude," "How Long") are dreamy, irresistible dance pop numbers with enough substance (yes, that is a cello) to keep even the avant garde wallflowers interested in the beats.
