Prolific English drum and-bass artist Squarepusher (né Tom Jenkinson) begins his newest album with “Plug Me In,” a track built on a slow, jaunting drum-line and a robotic vocal, before ripping into the energetic “Laser Rock,” a song full of futuristic samples. This is a statement of intent from the man: the album changes on every track, eschewing the sameness plaguing certain electronic albums, and choosing to vary genres as smoothly as possible. By the time that the closing track has concluded its schizophrenic barrage of drumming, the album has exhausted and enthralled its listeners, who will be ready to press rewind and live through it again.
