On their latest effort, Does It Offend You, Yeah?
do their best impression of the audio equivalent of an epileptic seizure. Like the urban myth of eating pop rocks and drinking soda, the combination of loud, aggressive dance beats with pop rock tendencies should make your head explode, but Don't Say We Didn't Warn You
doesn't quite achieve that level of carnage (it's at least definitely fizzy and enjoyable). DIOYY specialize in what I like to call the twisty-distorted riff, an effect somewhere in between a siren and Diplo pushing buttons for Major Lazer. The T-D riff anchors nearly all of their tracks, and if you haven't enjoyed some combination of strobe lights and substance abuse enhancing your enjoyment of "dance music", this may not be your flavor. Bon Iver, this is not. But if you'd rather party than contemplate, look no further.
