It shimmers, it jangles, it twinkles. It rocks, it soothes, it uplifts. It prods, it teases, it satisfies. It is Dots, the fifth studio album by Subterfuge. Admittedly, the boyhood friends from Dusseldorf have been perfecting their craft for 30 years, but this album is a pop music triumph by any measure. The breadth of musical proficiency displayed by the band is impressive -- from twee tunes to jangles to psychedelic to college rock, they can write it all and play it with style and conviction. Vibrant and full of life, Dots will be one of your out of left field treasures of the year.
