Swayzak’s James Taylor and David Brown have become some of the more reliable producers in the biz, and their fifth album doesn’t tinker with their signature sound too much: It’s still full of pop-friendly, atmospheric tech-house, where dubby, echoing beats abound. Some Other Country sounds a bit more contemplative than their prior full-lengths, but similar to their spellbinding DJ sets, Swayzak works this veneer of melancholy seamlessly onto the dancefloor. Check Richard Davis’ silky vocals on “No Sad Goodbyes” for nostalgic warmth, while the trance-pitched “Pukka Bumbles” is the next 2 a.m. club anthem, sure to inspire remixes aplenty.
