New Glow

Happy-go-lucky duo spray Silly String all over the party

Matt & Kim

Matt and Kim are experts at throwing euphorically geeky dance parties, cranking out jams that would sound more at home in a bounce castle than in a club. The mix of indie pop, hip-hop and EDM on the Brooklyn duo’s fifth album has never been catchier — from the twerped-out trap music of “Stirred Up” to the casual swag of “Hoodie On” to the sugar-shocked New Wave of “Make a Mess,” their all-smiles assault can be adorable, at least in moderate doses. But unless you’re the kind of person who throws your hands in the air to a salvo like, “We’re riding bikes through red lights/We’re bulletproof,” the cuteness starts to wear thin pretty fast.
