Self-confessed French “slackers” Sex in Dallas create an interesting musical melting pot that moves one or two steps beyond your typical electro fodder. Lead singles “Berlin Rocks” and “Everybody Deserves to be Fucked” highlight the band’s progressive approach to composition and production, while “5 O’Clock” and “Songs of the Beach” provide a mellower respite from the otherwise omnipresent four/four beat. SID’s constant chatter over the tracks does come off as a bit self-indulgent at times, but overall this is a fine debut from an act that definitely makes the effort to push things further.
