MP3s of the week: Blanks. and DJ PTVN

Partly a shameless "House of Jealous Lovers" ripoff, and partly a genius extension of dance-punk's 15 minutes of fame, "Pouncer" is not your average DFA cloning experiment gone awry. Sure, all the basics are there -- the hi-hat-kissed snare beat, the gangrene-guitar stabs, the falsetto-ing dude who sounds like he's feeling up the third rail. But Blanks., Allston's newest dance-dance revolutionaries, are too knowing, and too damn handsome, to leave it at that. If the original version doesn't have Lower East Side trust fund babies smashing their disco balls into coke mirrors, the synthy remix -- by We Are Cassette and Eject maestro DJ PTVN -- ought to do the trick. Check them out next Monday, March 13 at Great Scott, with Hot Chip and Big Digits.
