MU­SEUM OF LOVE Mu­seum of Love ★★★ DFA

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

One ex­pects cer­tain things from a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween LCD Soundsys­tem founder/drum­mer Pat Ma­honey and fel­low DFA/ Run Roc la­bel lu­mi­nary Den­nis McNany. There are mo­ments here when the duo stay within the mu­si­cal fold as we’d ex­pect, given their ties and al­liances. But the al­bum re­ally zings with a dif­fer­ence when Mu­seum of Love take a twist and a turn off the usual smart elec­tro-pop road that. You can hear it in the con­toured driv­ing groove that pro­pels The Large Glass; the widescreen pop sparks that light up In In­fancy; and Ma­honey’s sweet David Byrne- es­que vo­cals that make And All the Win­ners a lit­tle spe­cial. But Mu­seum of Love are largely crea­tures of habit, and there’s fa­mil­iarly in the ma­gen­tic jam of Down South and the solid, tricked-out drawl that dic­tates how Monotronic rolls. mu­se­u­moflove.net
