Faux Fir’s collaboration is a catchy collection of synth-heavy indie pop that recalls bands like Passion Pit and Hot Chip. Some of their songs explode from a simple slinking bass line into a kaleidoscope of electronic blips and chunky keyboard parts while other songs morph a pretty standard indie rock tune into club territory with disco drums and a plinking, Nintendo-indebted keyboard parts. There are so many layers but every once in a while there is that thing that will stick out and grab your attention and then disappear again like a shark fin.
