Across his two excellent full-lengths as the dance-party instigator and antagonist ITAL, Daniel Martin-McCormick has gotten progressively aggressive, rupturing his four-four marches with all manner of caustic noise and florid accompaniment. He's not averse to incorporating a recognizable sample of a pop song, but he does it to show the extent to which he can torment with it, not as a facile trigger for people putting their hands up. You'd expect as much from the batty guy leading the post-punk wrecks Mi Ami or synth-pop malingerer Sex Worker. Still, Martin-McCormick's musical corrosion doesn't preclude any fun you might have; he just tests it, as if to make sure that the beat and brain can move at once, bound by euphoria or its equally affecting opposite. —Grayson Currin
