Mp3 of the Week: Roh Delikat

DOWNLOAD: Roh Delikat, "10 Brand" (mp3)

Having dropped the stylishly percolating ProTools pop of their debut like a cheating boyfriend, ROH DELIKAT ditch the sequencer and fall in love with the sound of guitars on their new disc Sunny. Their matching of a pretty voice with dark, askew melodies winks back at the old-school 4AD roster, the sound of pale girls junked on goth and dub. On "10 Brand," a dancehall-like bass line and an ominous, sinewy guitar line catch fire and burst into a distorted clang; even diminutive singer Kristina Johnson's soft-focus purr curls into a sneer. Rocking that loud-quiet shit like a dude popping collar on his throwback jersey, Kristina's right in the pocket for your back-to-the-early-90s party.
