The Glitch Mob

Imagine a post-apocalyptic world where the last remaining humans battle against artificial intelligence for survival. After the smoke clears, on a heaping mound of junked robots, stands a trio armed merely with speakers. That trio is the Los Angeles-based electronic dance crew The Glitch Mob, and that image is easily conjured when listening to their latest release, Drink the Sea. More literally, the band of Ed Ma, Justin Boreta and Josh Mayer has mastered their robots—electronic mediums for music creation—in ways that haven’t been done before. The first minute of album opener “Animus Vox” sounds like it could have been The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’s main theme if the movie had been set in 2200. The unrelentingly exuberant songs that follow create a cohesive collection. “We didn’t want just a bunch of dancefloor singles—that’s the world we come from,” says Justin Boreta.
