UN­DER­RATED

Los Angeles Times - - SUNDAY CALENDAR -

Un­der­world: An elec­tronic duo who charted a course for elec­tronic dance mu­sic in the ’ 90s with the mas­sive hit “Born Slippy” ( heard on the “Trainspot­ting” sound­track), Un­der­world and its dy­namic front­man, Karl Hyde, proves that dance mu­sic reaches its most tran­scen­dent heights with a hu­man touch. Hyde and part­ner Rick Smith per­form from a sur­pris­ingly time­less back cat­a­log, in­clud­ing the reis­sued 1994 al­bum “Dub­nobass­with­my­head­man,” at the Hol­ly­wood Bowl Sun­day. ‘ What We Do in the

Shad­ows’ ( 2015): The world has been a darker place with­out “Flight of the Con­chords,” and thank­fully half of the duo, Je­maine Cle­ment, is back with this ami­ably silly hor­ror­com­edy, which he wrote and di­rected with costar Taika Waititi. Struc­tured in doc­u­men­tary style, the New Zealand im­port fol­lows the mun­dane lives of three vam­pire room­mates who divvy up the chores and try not to stand out while sat­is­fy­ing their thirst for blood.
