The Modernist Explosion
A Popular Tool (Matador)

By: Alex Steininger

If you thought experimental music and electronica music were getting dull, because it's all been done before, you haven't heard The Modernist Explosion. Crisp, funky, and highly danceable, the band melds melody and experimental energy into one tight package.

A Popular Tool delivers instrumental electronica that is at once redundant, but somehow manages to keep you listening, pulling off experimental tricks to keep your ears attentively listening and excited.

Groove-laden, with plenty of snap-crackle-pop excitement throughout the whole album, it will make you think twice about electronica and experimental music, as you curse it and condemn it, but find yourself dancing and shaking the night away to it. I'll give it a B.
