Pet Shop Boys
Break out your black turtlenecks, pound a case of Red Bull and get ready to fly off the handle because the Pet Shop Boys are still fighting the good fight with their 18th record. This duo has been a consistent vehicle for electronic English pop since 1984 when they were crooning over tape machines inspiring audiences to cut loose to funky loops and robotic synth leads. The new record, Yes, offers carpet-cutting gems like â€œBeautiful People,â€ but still strives to bug you out with down-tempo tunes during the latter half of the effort. Make sure to pre-party with the Pet Shop Boys before you get tore back on the dance floor this Wednesday at Duffy’s. You won’t regret it.
