Two well-established truisms are that Cleveland rocks, and that underground heroes Brandtson united all kids growing up on the skids with their massive back catalog on Deep Elm Records. However, on Hello, Control (the Clevo quartet's sophomore effort for the Militia Group label), the band wonders why "Nobody Dances Anymore." Control addresses this track's lament with a moveable, groovable hybrid of dark electro-pop influenced by '80s new-wavers Depeche Mode and New Order, and indie-rockers Jimmy Eat World and Minus the Bear. And if Brandtson's live show fails to get you moving, well, just take that crude attitude back where it belongs.
