Underworld Barbara, Barbara we are facing a shining future (Astralwerks)

Underworld’s members are verging on 60 years of age and have spent half their lives making influential electronic music, defying its boundaries and shelf life. The inimitable duo’s seventh album references its patented blueprint of fractured lyricism and hypnotic basslines on “I Exhale,” at the same time stepping away from it on the vocal-free, organic Spanish/Middle Eastern strings of “Santiago Cuatro,” and the digital ballad, “Motorhome.”

Watch the official video for “If Rah.”
