For Electric Lines, Goddard has adapted the tried and true DJ/producer album format-multiple vocal features, obscure samples, pop structures-to his particular sensibilities. But when Goddard taps into his love for house, disco, and techno, his enthusiasm radiates through the speakers. Where the sample on Home is used in contrast to the song’s more low-key moments, Lose Your Love repurposes the Emotions’ I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love in a more traditional way, carving through a climbing piano loop punctuated with blasts of horns. Goddard gives us a taste of the familiar with the title track, featuring vocals by Hot Chip’s lead singer Alexis Taylor.
While serving with Hot Chip and The 2 Bears, Joe Goddard has always understood that nuanced, inventive dance music needn’t sacrifice compelling beats and melodies. That continues on a second solo album that draws richly on the history of club culture. Detroit techno and disco mesh euphorically ( Home ), wonky pop sinks into warehouse bliss ( Electric Lines ), and 2-step becomes a vessel for tenderness ( Truth Is Light ). Best of all is Music Is the Answer, an arms-aloft call to the dance floor that layers together pop, electro-soul, and house. Electric Lines (Deluxe Version) Joe Goddard.

It is the kind of album that could background a hot August night, sometimes aglow with shimmering arpeggios, and occasionally veering toward a less distinctive, but perfectly enjoyable, dance pop sound.
