Editorial Reviews

Following in the footsteps of artists like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Depeche Mode, who have flocked to Berlin in order to mainline the city's legendary dark energy, !!! traveled to the German capital to produce a record that is simultaneously brooding and somehow their poppiest, most immediate record yet.
On the one hand, Strange Weather, Isnâ TMt It? is !!!'s most texturally rich record to date and is filled with deep, galvanizing grooves in the tradition of 2003â TMs "Me and Giuliani Down By the Schoolyard (A True Story)" and their mega anthem "Heart of Hearts." On the other, thereâ TMs a dark undercurrent running through the record that acts as a counterpoint to the glittering surfaces. In other words, although only 25% of the record was recorded in Berlin (the other 75% split between New York and Sacramento, California), Strange Weather, Isnâ TMt It? is the perfect Berlin album.

Technically, if you've heard one song by !!!, you've heard them all. Then why on Earth is it absolutely essential to own every album, EP and single these guys have ever released? The answer is simple - !!! offers one of the freshest, funkiest, most insanely addictive sounds in modern music.

Dance music created not by keyboards, but by a rotating cast of world-class percussionists, guitarists and rhythmic geniuses. The vocals and lyrics simply accent the mix: grunts, chants, ramblings and amputated musings are favored over anything remotely croony or emo. There's not a single long distance dedication-worthy lyrical passage in their catalog. Their songs will never be the theme to your prom - but they will keep most every dance floor on the planet moving til the point of sweaty, exhausted collapse. Personally, I can never tell when one song stops and the next starts. Nor do I ever care to find out.

This album moves !!! closer to a pop sound than ever before. Female vocalists accent the mix on several songs. The musings are somewhat coherent. But this is still way to edgy for the masses - don't expect a Justin Bieber cameo anytime soon.

If you're looking for a great companion to the LCD Soundsystem, Ladytron, Ratatat and Trans AM in your iPod, this is the album for you. Start here and then work your way back into their incredible catalog.

A record well entrenched, with a very striking cover, cold as ice, but very refreshing, much harder than a New Yorker (which is quite) and strong as a Berlin's native (capable of handling everything).

Back to basics is the flagship race of this wonderful album.

Recorded in Berlin (PERFECT !!!), Strange Weather Isn't It? represents a transitional period for the band. John Pugh, Justin Vandervolgen and Tyler Pope each exited the band prior to its release, which contributed to the change in the band's dynamic. And that change is reflected in the title as well. Built largely upon the framework that made the band's prior three albums such highly enjoyable disco-punk gems in their own right, Strange Weather strips away some of the rock elements in their sound in favor of a sleeker, more electronics heavy production rife with elements of dub and house. These elements loom large on first single "AM/FM," a disco nightcrawler that layers on echo effects and hypnotic, pulsing electro. At its heart, it's a !!! song, just a little more sinister, which makes it just a little more fun.

Without going into the conventions !!! brings his new work, which invites us to dance at once, full of excellent bass rhythms", hypnotic guitars (as we are accustomed to, but this time much better).

They're still thumping out the same grooves that have been steaming up clubs for the past decade. But at the same time, !!! has embraced new elements and evolved since their early days of bolstering punk rock with disco beats.

Strange Weather, Isn't It? stimulates pleasure zones and sends the pulse racing yet again, but don't be surprised if it's followed by a sudden chill.

I was not accustomed to the previous work of these gentlemen, but happened across one of their tunes on late night radio and bought the album, and I was very impressed. I suppose I would call it electro-funk myself, maybe a bit of Daft Punk meets Jamiroquai. Dancy without being over commercial, soothing without lacking interest, you could dance to this in a club just as easily as you could fall asleep to it on your MP3. Quite an achievement.
