10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Very quietly, Brooklyn duo Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly continue to craft superior whip-smart pop. Their third album is tremendous: you could eat your dinner off the pristine production and its freewheeling, rhythmic songs dart mischievously around endlessly inventive melodic corners. The poised, scintillating “Ch-Ching” is the obvious centrepiece and “Romeo” surges by in a thrilling electro blur, but it’s the more dialled-back work that impacts strongest. “Crying in Public” is a beautifully self-aware love letter to metropolitan heartbreak while closers “Unfinished Business” and “No Such Thing as Illusion” are glitchy, cinematic and completely wonderful.
