Omens

Even after hit collaborations with Ke$ha and Katy Perry, these jokey Colorado electro-rappers remain two nerdy bros. On their fourth LP, they ditch the guest stars to bluster, drop stale references (Yes, "winning"!) and obsess over chicks. The best track isn't one of the album's two singles, but "Two Girlfriends," a goof that seems to take its inspiration from the Beastie Boys' "Fight for Your Right."
