Tarot Sport represents a subtler, more mature approach to songwriting and a sharpening of their craft. But moreso, it marks a comprehensive stylistic shift for the duo's sound, from experimental noise with a buried pop sensibility to a sort of modernized electronic take on classic post-rock structures. And impressively, they've made these changes without sacrificing any of the genre-straddling adventurousness that made them intriguing in the first place.
Fuck Buttons - or F ck Buttons, according to their rather prudish press release - are two guys, Andrew Hung and Benjamin John Power. Adored by a certain kind of Pitchfork-reading indie fan, their second album's long, trance-inducing instrumentals nod to techno, noise and even the current shoegaze revival. It's not the surface-level sonic sorcery that moves you here, but the melancholic undertow, a sense of sadness that washes over tracks such as The Lisbon Maru, surely a new market standard bearer when it comes to sad electronic songs about sinking Japanese freighters.

The album is one of unbound possibility and lucid cohesion; a cerebral pilgrimage that refines, crafts, explores and develops the experimental aesthetic of last year's critically acclaimed debut, Street Horrrsing.
