[SCANTY POP] While far from the first to do so, Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories reminds us how important the human element is to electronic music. But the machines can be trusted for some pretty pop sketches as well, as Montreal duo Valleys demonstrates with an unabashedly stark, hazy and highly mechanized sound. Drum loops, synths and moody guitars make latest effort Are You Going to Stand There and Talk Weird All Night much more straightforward than its title suggests. It’s mildly dark, technology-driven pop, hoisted to the heavens by breathy vocal gusts.
