From the darkest reaches of the earth, Finnish kids Sami Liuski (Bangkok Impact) and Pauli Jylhânkangas are perfecting a warm blend of shuffly New York disco and early-'80s Detroit sounds. Combining analog synths and live guitar with campy dancefloor fun, the pair creates music that is consistently good, from their resolutely danceable tracks to quirky midtempo ones. But none stands out like the driving opener "1300" and its antecedent, "Asian Girls." The latter features bouncing bass and feel-good strings sashaying across the floor like so much jiggy choreography to the breathy chorus of "Asian girrrls... Chinese loverrr..." Not to be missed.
