No. 5: School of Seven Bells

If you've ever purveyed your local dance/ trance halls, you've probably noticed that there's much too much bad dance music. You know, the kind of stuff that requires that extra drink just so you can try out that new dress on the dance floor. With "Disconnect from Desire," the sophomore album from the trio composed of twin sisters Claudia and Alejandra Deheza, as well as former Secret Machines rocker Ben Curtis, you'll gladly get out and groove in a potato sack. The reason why is simply: good dance music grabs you and puts you on your feet. Whether it be "I L U" or "Bye Bye Bye," SVIIB puts the perfect amount of polish on these sonic gems, and if we were to make a comparison to, say, cars, it comes off feeling like a Porsche: it's svelte, it's intoxicating, and it makes you feel good just for being around it. Layered electric guitars, synth, and vocals makes for pure pleasure, and you can always check out "I L U" on the MySpace site above. Excellent job, gals (and guy).
