What a title. Nick Huntington and Michael McGroarty are either the mack-daddies of downtempo IDM or the most sexually-frustrated among the laptop crowd, because there’s no getting around just how sexy, bubbly and narcotic their third Freescha LP really is. Whats leaves behind the operatic melancholia of Freescha’s first two albums, opting instead for the mesmerizing carnival funk of “Watcha Gonna Go For It?” and the synth-driven post-disco smarm on “Smurf Shoo,” plus lots of genre-crossing ground in between. Cotton candy panties for your ears. Seeing as Freescha focus on actual melodies instead of loops for their music, labeling them the Boards of California is no longer viable.
