The ultimate Brit-pop charmers craft gemlike rock out of rec-room materials--bass, drum, guitar, keyboards, and Gaz Coombes' thin, sexy voice. The trio rejects the loutishness and retrophilia of its colleagues; they're cheerier and more idiosyncratic, whether romping through old-school disco or grounding heavenly British Invasion-style pop with cool R&B keyboards. The single, a wink at Ziggy-era Bowie asks if we hear them "Pumping on Your Stereo"--as if we could miss anything so brash, glittery, and deliriously tuneful.
