This week, XLR8R visited bizarre terrain, kicking things off with Escort’s Muppet invasion on “All Through the Night.” Next, we witnessed the Plastic Little dudes as they unleashed their latest single, “Dopeness.” Ninja Tune’s resident weirdo Pop Levi offered up a goth-inspired pop anthem, “Pick-Me-Up Uppercut,” while Thursday ushered in the resurrection of Short Circuit’s Johnny Five, on Greenskeepers’ latest single. We capped off the week with Tracey Thorn’s Ewan Pearson-produced romantic banger, “Raise the Roof.” Raise it.
