The magazine declares:
*Their self titled debut LP is at once exceedingly danceable and deeply soulful. The former is due to Andy Butler's many years as a DJ and to the production savvy of the DFA's Tim Goldsworthy, while the latter is a result of emotional lyrics ("A lot of the lyrical content is personal and rooted in my experience as a gay guy growing up" says Butler) & Antony, whose odd, haunting voice is neither the first, second, nor third thing that comes to mind when you imagine a perfect disco vocalist. And yet, it's an oddly perfect fit.* MP3 from the album at bottom of post.
