Out Hud, the mysterious collective based in Sacramento, shares members with !!! in a world of freestyle collaboration and genre melding grooves. Upon the release of "S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D." in 2002, Out Hud drew comparisons to Kraftwerk combined with Pavement mixed with a taste of house and Giorgio Moroder et al. This time around, on "Let Us Never Speak of It Again," Out Hud mixes things up a bit more with hints of Tom Tom Club and sooped up digital production bobbling to the surface. In short, this is a booty swaying mess of a record but we like.
