Gogogo Airheart defies clear description. Hooray, them! But here goes: GGG Airheart is lo-fi, smart-art rock -- electrifying and mysterious. Old and new simultaneously, the music is moody and off kilter. You may laugh at the unusual musical fusions upon first listen to their new release, Exitheuxa, but by the second time through, it may well be love. Michaela Vermillion's elastic high-register voice summons Pornography-era Robert Smith, pre-fame Tom Bailey circa A Product of... (no kidding) and Jack White's thin take on Robert Plant's white-boy soul. Just when you think you understand their musical vocab, they throw in horns or a punk rock number, only to close the album with a dub-infused, spoken-word ramble.
