The Glitch Mob: Love Death Immortality
Los Angeles trio The Glitch Mob made their name on the festival scene with throbbing, explosive late night live sets. But their debut album, 2010’s Drink The Sea, turned that intensity down a notch, leaning closer to trip-hop than EDM. Love Death Immortality finds Edward “edIT” Ma, Justin Boreta and Josh “Ooah” Mayer” making up for lost time on the dance floor. This is potent stuff—full-speed ahead, blown-out beats; pummeling synths ranging from “laser gun” to “chainsaw;” and enough builds and drops to give you vertigo. All perfect for, say, a movie about futuristic soldiers blowing things up, or giant robots
destroying the world. And yet, for all the melodrama, Love Death Immortality is a roaring good time. You may lose hipster points, but you’ll pump your fists anyway.
