Robbing Millions almost produced an East London Dancefloor Killer

For a while the upbeat hip tempo of Robbing Millions’ new single had me back on the dancefloor in East London. No-one dances but the music makes you feel as cool as fuck even if, like me, you don’t look it. The urgency of the vocals, the remonstration reminds me of Bloc Party and Ceasar’s Palace, the American nasal tones recall MGMT, Ween and Catchers. This could have been a dancefloor killer, but Stereolab appear to have had their hands on the second half, the track tapers out into an organ solo with angelic cooing.
