CASIOKIDS - TOPP STEMNING PS LOKAL BAR (double disc)
Norway's CASIOKIDS debut Australian album Topp Stemning Ps Lokal Bar is made up of the kind of bubbling, relentlessly upbeat danceable indie pop that might scare off people who hate feeling giddy, but will bring happiness to all those who prefer to dance with big, goofy grins on their faces. Or in animal costumes.
The record is made up of songs the band previously released as singles and of remixes with artists like Lo-Fi-Fink and Captain Credible ramping up the songs for maximum dancefloor impact. It also features Casiokids versions of songs by James Yulli and Familjen, the former a sweet ballad, the latter a percolating jam that could fill a dancefloor in seconds. It's an often stunning example of a band that's mastered the ability to craft songs made for dancing but with enough melody and imagination to stand alone as perfectly sculpted pop gems. The songs are built around cheap bubbling synths, propulsive beats, and Ketil Kinden Endresen's gorgeous (sung in Norwegian) falsetto vocals, and draw from classic house, dance-punk, and disco influences, yet remain wonderfully ramshackle and inauthentic.
Casiokids may grow up and get serious someday, but until then their innocent and happy brand of pop will do just fine for warming hearts and filling dance floors.
