Ever since Jas Shaw and James Ford split off from indie-pop outfit Simian circa 2006 to form Simian Mobile Disco, a cheeky sensibility has always underpinned the duo's slinky electro. On 2009's Temporary Pleasure, SMD mocked rich-kid opulence with "Audacity of Huge" by having Yeasayer vocalist Chris Keating boast about owning absurd status items such as "a bag of Bill Murray," "that Tammy Faye milk money butterscotch," and "that double dutch dinosaur duplex in Dubai." For 2010 compilation Delicacies, the London-based duo indulged themselves with tracks named after strange dishes such as Sardinian casu marzu (maggot-filled sheep milk cheese) and Icelandic hákarl (fermented shark). More lately, SMD's two 2012 releases bear strikingly similar cover designs, even as their titles of Unpatterns and A Form of Change expect you to assume that similarities are not in the cards.
