Shout Out Out Out Out's brand of dancefloor-friendly indie rock-electro is unique in a few respects. First off, the Edmonton-based group has four bass players, one for each "Out" in their name. Secondly, they are concerned as much with melody and experimentation as they are with riling up crowded clubs full of sweaty dancers. On their second album Reintegration Time, there is as much Kraftwerk in their sound as there is Daft Punk, and it helps them stand out from the hordes of groups who share a similar aesthetic.
Edmonton electro pop lovers Shout Out Out Out Out are back, and they haven't changed things up much since we last heard from them. Still lots of major-key synth melodies, singalong vocoder choruses and bouncy beats. [rssbreak] They have the formula down, but 10 tracks of this gets a little tedious. When Cadence Weapon steps in to throw down some vocals on Coming Home, it comes across as if they were doing a tongue-in-cheek tribute to 80s hip-house and acid.
