Call it ‘dance punk,’ ‘electroclash’ or ‘blog house’: in the 00s, bands like !!! and Ladytron would accept any hastily coined genre you threw at them, as long as it convinced indifferent hipsters to uncross their arms and start dancing again. How did they pull that trick off? It doesn’t hurt to have a charismatic frontwoman (like CSS’s goofy, pixieish Lovefoxxx, or the ür-ice queen Miss Kittin). Mostly, though, these bands were willing to out-pretentious the scene kids. If Fischerspooner can intone the absurd, grandiose hook of “Emerge” while clearly having loads of fun, what’s your excuse for standing still?
