With "Radical Connector," German electronic duo Mouse on Mars blends its signature computerized glitch-beats with a more dance-oriented sound. This results in the act's most melodic and accessible album of its career. "Wipe That Sound" is driven by an infectious disco-funk groove that wouldn't seem out of place on a Basement Jaxx album. Female vocalist Niobe is featured on the album's other two highlights: "Send Me Shivers," an icy electro-pop trip reminiscent of Zero Seven, and "The End," which lopes along to a grimy hip-hop-flavored beat fit for Dizzee Rascal. Longtime fans of the twosome's art-noise may be surprised by the shift to a more populist direction, but the evolution should help expand Mouse on Mars' appeal.—BG
