In 1996, synth-saturated U.K. producers Underworld helped bring bleeps and blops closer to the mainstream with the high-profile placement of their song "Born Slippy NUXX" in the hit film Trainspotting. The group's dubby acid house deftly balances the hauntingly subtle and the blissfully full-blown, and Underworld performances remain full of fluorescent melodies, cascading riffs, and other giddy gibberish. Tour opener Damian Lazarus is equally prog-leaning and sonically insatiable. The British expat recently released his debut full-length, Smoke the Monster Out, which is full of multiprocessed harmonies, hissing percussion, and paranoid lullabies.
