Swedes: they’re still insane! Enter Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, better known as Bloodshy and Avant, the Stockholm production duo known for doing tracks with Madonna and Britney Spears, notably on the single-of-the-century contender “Toxic.” Here they hook up with indie boy Andrew Wyatt, manhandling his plaintive love ballads until they explode into freewheeling electro fantasias. “Faker” might be a well-turned pop song on acoustic guitar, but this threesome bring out the unruly emotion in it with synth swirls and junkyard disco breaks. The New Wave yearning of “Plastic Jungle” is something toxic indeed.
