The newest album from Oakland-based psycho-popster Vice Cooler (better known as the frontman of XBXRX) is a blitzkrieg of groovy rhythms, clumsy-yet-cool rhymes and total synth-slamming abuse. This undanceable breed of electronic music is either pure gold for fans of freak music or poison to those looking for another Justice or Simian Mobile Disco. Either way, an entertaining listen.
The bottom line: ***1/2
With Head Like a Kite, The Vinyl Clouds. August 23, 10 p.m., $8. Beauty Bar, 598-1965.
