On their second album, this New York synth-pop duo trumpet the power of "Dumb Disco Ideas." And they've got more than a few of them, expertly cribbed from classic Depeche Mode, Italo-disco, Giorgio Moroder, New Order, LCD Soundsystem and more. Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel's New York is a high-end playpen, "a sick and lovely place," as they call it on the relentlessly percolating "Bridge and Tunnel," but there isn't much jaded distance in the songs. Not only could you imagine the graphic designer Tony Manero of 2013 pulling on skinny jeans to the cybertronic kink of "Dance a Little Closer," you'll pray he dances the night away with the hottest luxury-condo-showings coordinator in the club.
