On their new LP Program 91, Razika manages to find the best in the word "inoffensive," producing an album that is the definition of an easy listen, while also managing not to leave listeners feeling as if their time has been wasted in any way.
Like a lot of indie-pop albums, Program 91 is relatively quick and dirty. But despite its brevity, the album's second side drags a bit, as the skanked rhythms begin to bleed into each other with a lack of individual distinction.
Too often, Program 91 is a controlled explosion, hemmed in by a fangirlish conservatism. When it all clicks--as it does with "Above All" and a handful of other tracks--this is spiky twee pop in a black-and-white cardigan of glory.
