Album Review

By "floor," they mean dancefloor. Where neo-wave bands like the Epoxies are mostly interested in the arch, stylized Devo end of the new wave scene, and Interpol prefers the stylized moodiness of seasoned Joy Division followers, this quintet from the border city of Abbotsford, British Columbia is all about the dancefloor. Pylon, the herky-jerky pride of Athens, GA, is the band most recognizable in You Say Party!

The best material largely makes up for the weaker tracks, however.
