Strictly on the basis of its effervescent electro-pop sound alone, Jessy Lanza’s new Hyperdub album, Oh No, plays like a product of Desperately Seeking Susan–era NYC. With a dance-floor-ready mix of breathy sighs and drum pads, it brings to mind Madonna’s “Lucky Star” by way of ESG’s “Moody.” In truth, the singer-producer hails from Ontario, she coproduced the record with partner Jeremy Greenspan of the Junior Boys, and she cites Japan’s Yellow Magic Orchestra as an influence (Greenspan also coproduced her 2013 debut, Pull My Hair Back). Since trading her career as a music teacher for full-time music making, Lanza has also worked with Morgan Geist and Caribou’s Dan Snaith. Rounding out the bill: Chicago footwork producer DJ Taye and hard disco DJ Jimi Jaxon. KATHY FENNESSY
