Album Review

Talented remixers and able DJs, the Twelves debuted in the full-length realm with, fittingly, a mix album including mostly their remixes. Part of the Kitsuné Tabloid series previously helmed by Phoenix, the duo give frequent shout-outs to the '80s, including an A-side/B-side tape/LP configuration, as well as tracks from two far-flung disco maestros of the '80s (Chaz Jankel, who created some towering electro-disco in addition to serving ably as Ian Dury's music director, and the ground-breaking, Italian post-disco producer Alexander Robotnick). But of course it's the Twelves' post-production and track selection that should be focused on here; indebted to the chunkier Salsoul side of prime '70s disco, the duo also flaunt their affinity for drum machines and synth strings on an exclusive mix of "Humanitarianism" by Zeigeist. A slightly better choice for dancing or socializing than close listening, Kitsuné Tabloid is at its best when the Twelves are messing with high-profile artists, as when they transform Metric's Emily Haines into a disco diva on "Help I'm Alive" or pushing Two Door Cinema Club onto the dancefloor. Other highlights come from Daniel Wang, Zongamin, Ratatat, and the Juan Maclean.
