Most everyone agrees that there was a golden age for music, but what they won’t tell you was that it snuck in around the turn of the millennium and consisted of stark, seemingly hastily-­constructed electro. Which is exactly why Olivia Neutron-John floats my boat despite the fact that as a rule, I’m hesitant to embrace puns or mashed-up celebrity references (with my pointy dunce cap off to the long­-ago Houston act DJ Cuba Gooding, Jr. by way of an exception) but as O­-N­-J makes clear, genius doesn’t always heed the rules. In fact, this sounds like nothing so much as the production depravity of Glass Candy’s Johnny Jewel gone to seed in the fields of the one­time reigning queens of Houston music, Rua Minx, before they became a she and the music became art and avant­-garde fashion. It’s all presets and blocks of tone, sound, and mystery. With Priests, the Lories.
