Album Review

Considering that Livesexact comprises a bunch of MIT techies who have only one album and that Segmented Purity is a lengthy disc of remixes by unknowns, it's pretty damn surprising that it outshines much of the nu-electro flooding the indie scene. Avoiding pretension in favor of fun and eschewing the long, pondersome passages that weigh down even the best electro albums (Ladytron's mostly excellent Light & Magic being a perfect example), Livesexact does a pretty good job of walking the line between the electro revival's distinct indie-isms and the fact that dance music should be, y'know, fun. Every track is wedded to a big, distinct pop hook — even including the instrumentals — and most of the remixers do a fantastic job of either making sense or making noise out of their chosen cut. The choicest track is the most coherent: "Livesexactivate," a big, dumb, horn-spiked funk-electro anthem that repeats its dopey "The Roof Is on Fire"-esque choruses for almost seven gleeful minutes. And even the more standard electro numbers, like the opening "Livesexwerk Mix" of "You Must Get Down," kick just as much butt.
