FM Belfast - How to Make Friends
Icelandic synth-pop duo's debut album. It's dance-y and varied. There's lo-fi, 8bit, punk, freak folk and more. The electronics mostly work, but they can sound thin at times. A list of similar artists would be mostly pointless as there are different parts of Hot Chip, MGMT, Chromeo, Royksopp, Kraftwerk, Daft Punk and more in every track. The lyrics are light and nonsensical. I recommend 10 for catchy pop, 2 for new wave, and 5 for an interesting dance track.

1. 3:49 repetitive but catchy pop with a strong, glitch-y beat.
2.* 3:09 relatively soft and melodic, very very New Wave
3. 3:33 bouncy pop beat with deep, languid vocals. It's almost a copy of Chromeo's Momma's Boy
4. 3:09 freak-folk vocals with a wall (of sound) of synths
5.* 2:42 lo-fi dance track. very slow, sparse, and simple electronics. a quiet dance track
6. 3:16 it's the single. bouncy, afro-reggae influenced accents and percussion
7. 2:52 synth punk. it's very similar to track #1 and in the context of the album, feels redundant
8. FCC
9. 3:21 aggressive synth-punk (Crystal Castles or maybe Nine Inch Nails style)
10.* 3:14 brightest, bounciest pop on the album. trumpets. EASILY the best track
11. 3:45 Call and response style. Daft punk meets Ting tings. A few lines of rap thrown in at 2:30
