16 Songs, 58 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The clever cover art for Strangers, the debut album by RAC (a.k.a. Remix Artist Collective), is no accident: depicting a person with a pixilated face, it symbolizes principal member André Allen Anjos' ambition to blur the line between artist and producer, pop star and pop architect. Known primarily for his work as a remixer of songs by everyone from Kings of Leon to Death Cab for Cutie, Anjos conscripted a diverse array of guests for his debut of original material, including Tokyo Police Club, Yacht, and synth-pop crooner St. Lucia. "Hard to Hold" finds Tegan and Sara strutting their stuff over a saccharine midtempo beat, while "Hollywood" features Penguin Prison and the kind of chorus that fans of Foster the People or Phoenix will swoon for. Infused with the sounds of '80s pop, Anjos' compositions are designed for sunny summer rooftop parties, their Technicolor synths and expressive drum loops complementing the guest list of electro-pop all-stars.
