Hi-Res
Three years after their prior release, Swedish electronic duo Galantis keep the party going on their third full-length, Church. Familiar to the core, this set plays like an extended dance mix intended for both expansive festival grounds and sweaty clubs. Indeed, it's high-energy and packed with optimistic lyrics that are a dime a dozen in this genre. However, there aren't many new tricks on display here; instead, Church is simply a fun listen that aims for fleeting good vibes. A handful of famous voices share the limelight, namely U.K. singer John Newman ("Hurricane"), indie outfit Passion Pit ("I Found U"), and pop group OneRepublic ("Bones"), but the best guest provides the album's biggest (and most surprising) moment. Alongside Mr. Probz, country icon Dolly Parton lends her inimitable vocals to the uplifting hit anthem "Faith," which topped the Swedish singles chart. Additional collaborators also receive marquee listing, however it's '90s singer and 2000s hit songwriter Cathy Dennis who delivers the most understated (and anonymous) contributions. Providing vocals for more than a third of the album, she also owns the bulk of the standouts, including the feel-good, piano-synth overload "Steel"; the elastic pop of "Unless It Hurts"; and the joyous, hands-in-the-air standout "Holy Water." Overall, Church plays like a collection of Avicii outtakes and much of the LP loses steam as the fairly generic tracks eventually start to bleed into one another. Picking through the bunch, there are some good bits to pluck out, but otherwise Church is better suited as cheerfully innocuous background music for a house party. © Neil Z. Yeung /TiVo

Side projects shouldn't be this good but Galantis -- featuring Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklöw from Style of Eye -- are excellent on Pharmacy, a vibrant debut LP that's bright, attractive, and oozing with earworms. EDM is the main category header with bass drops and dramatic buildups in plentiful supply, but Karlsson and Eklöw are pop or alt-pop songwriters at heart, always up for a clever turn of phrase and offering genuine uplift that will survive all the uploaded acoustic cover versions yet to come. "Forever Tonight" and "Runaway (U & I)" are the best examples, with messages and moods that could stand tall without all the slick production. As icing on the cake goes, the beatmaking and studio wizardry here are delicious, falling somewhere between a Disclosure-sized "wow" and an Empire of the Sun sense of what suits the song. Cheeseball words like "glisten" and "love" fill progressive house numbers that are weighty enough to balance them, then "Dancin' to the Sound of a Broken Heart" gives the more goth-minded listeners a shoutout with some moody minor chords. Top it all off with "Peanut Butter Jelly" (not the similarly named booty song but a way cool blast of neo-disco) and Pharmacy is a fantastic and instantly gripping effort, one that brings reminders of first encounters with acts like the Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, and Basement Jaxx. © David Jeffries /TiVo
