FILTER Grade: 77%

Grand expectations often lead to disappointment. But with Simian Mobile Disco, having high hopes isn’t exactly out of order. As a follow-up to 2010’s sinister compilation Delicacies, Unpatterns stands decidedly in a shadow. The repulsive glory that was the video to “Sweetbread” may never again be attained, but that’s not an excuse for the pallid “Seraphim” as this album’s single. It sounds less like an electronic order of angels, and more like Layo & Bushwacka!, surprisingly.
