Between the Funk and the Fear

Hologram Teen

Following a couple of earlier singles under the Hologram Teen name, Stereolab veteran Morgan Lhote released her own full length debut Between the Funk And the Fear, an enjoyably accomplished listen. Showing an interest in post-punk electronic aesthetics in particular – “Post-Apocalypteacakes” clearly nods to New Order’s epochal “Blue Monday” – Lhote works with a few guests, including a couple of vocalists, but songs like “Tracksuit Minotaur,” the blasting “Lesbian Death Drums” and “Bartok in C” help establish her sound in a distinct way.
