British electronic duo Groove Armada  is best-known in the mainstream for teaming with Fatboy Slim  on the 1999 booty-shakin' Big Beat hit "I See You Baby." But with the release of its seventh full-length album, "Black Light," Groove Armada has a new claim to fame. The quietly brilliant set translates the dance-rock explosion through the lenses of two guys who have lived the dance scene from the beginning. The result is well-read pop music that hints at everything from David Bowie  to ESG  to Serge Gainsbourg . There could even be a hipster hit--the song "Paper Romance" ambles into a shout-sing chorus that MGMT  fans won't be able to resist. Wrapped within this revelation is Saint Saviour, a co-writer on the album who also lends vocals to select songs in a style that switches from Robyn  to Róisín Murphy to Stevie Nicks .
