Your Daily Lick: Hawnay Troof

Islands of Ayle (Southern Records)

How excellent indeed when experimental music is also entirely listenable. That’s the beauty of Oakland electro-agitator Hawnay (née Vice Cooler) Troof’s second album, which applies a left-field electronica sensibility to the sort of gritty, urban dance-pop that’s made a resurgence around here recently. Although nothing short of cutting-edge, Islands sounds fantastic.
