"AM/FM"

On their first single from their new LP Strange Weather, Isn't It?, the Brooklyn dance-rockers (who pronounce their name "chk chk chk") deliver a fat slice of funk that has all the sleaze and residue of a '70s New York disco. You can hear the porn-star mustache on "AM/FM," from the chubby bassline to the ditzy backup vocals. Singer Nic Offer's vocals barely cut through the mix — his lyrics are too dunked in reverb. But this song is more about the groove than the lyrics. As its title suggests, "AM/FM" goes back to a time when those letters still meant something.
