Hamburg house-rock sensation Digitalism sounds exactly as you'd expect. They mix synth-heavy electronic beats with rock sensibilities to create danceable electronica that inspires everything from toe tapping in the most reserved to all-out raving for the not so humble. Digitalism succeeds not only in creating the easiest RIYL column of all time, but also in joining those bands in reaching beyond the techno freaks and into the iPod of the indie rock-loving fan base.

Creatively titled "Zdarlight" is a beat-heavy track sure to get your head bumping, with frequent beat changes and a punchy guitar adding to the synth frenzy. With its James Murphy-esque vocals, twinkling bells and throbbing bass, "Pogo" is guaranteed to reach a crossover crowd. Digitalism is the rare case of an over-hyped overseas group with the chops to match the talk. B- | Mike Tangaro

RIYL: LCD Soundsystem, Justice, Daft Punk
