On the debut full-length from Leeds-based duo Audiojack (Jamie Rial and Richard Burkinshaw), unusual accents and the creative integration of live instruments puts a fresh spin on things. “Jack the Keys” features subdued notes of off-kilter piano that speed up into funky, somewhat sinister house. Meanwhile, “Radio” scatters static over a sturdy techno foundation; the effect is akin to a broken television being dropped into the middle of a dancefloor. “No Control” decorates a lopsided tribal rhythm with effervescent synths, ambiguous moaning, and what sounds like an electric didgeridoo. The album takes a dark pass on “Shanghai” but ends on a decidedly high note with the chime-dappled groove “Sun Through the Ceiling.”
