    It slips down easily, and the duo's knowledge and pedigree (their debut is out on 16-year-old rave label Ultra Records, once home to the Chemical Brothers and Tiƫsto) also satisfies the yen of longtime dance-music lovers who might be side-eyeing all the Johnny-Come-Latelies.

    An effort to be commended, but you don't have to care about global economics to enjoy the booty-shaking beats.

    Feed Me Diamonds is best, though, when it gets emotionally heady.

    While it is nice to see MNDR's vulnerable side on slower tracks like "Stay" and "Blue Jean Youth," she is at her best with tracks that keep you moving like "Faster Horses," "Fall In Love With The Enemy" and "U.B.C.L."

    MNDR's debut is a sweaty workout that mixes chilly electro moves with the kind of joyous beats that soundtracked summertime in the 1980s.

    MNDR resides somewhere in the territory between a less quirky Grimes and Charli XCX. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.119]

    It's a little disappointing that in the two years since her debut EP, Warner couldn't come up with anything more distinguished than Feed Me Diamonds.

    MNDR's debut full-length, Feed Me Diamonds, is filled with choruses of "ooh whoa oohs" and other shots at those easy hooks that you can't stop whistling. But the material doesn't connect with the proper force.
