 Cassius
The men behind Cassius have clearly been doing a lot of thinking over the three years since the release of their album 1999 - and such an approach sometimes, paradoxically, means disregarding certain ideas along the way.
Cassius' music is still trippy; more often than before, however, it now trades in its ultra-smart, highly characteristic introspection for a much rawer energy: with the omnipresence of music today - on TV, radio, and the Internet, in cars, and wafting through supermarkets - a more head-on approach is required.
While 1999 was a mix of hip-hop and electronic music, Cassius' new album is one of projection: though living in the here and now, it has the feel of throwing two dice up into the air and then not waiting to see if you've got a double six.

Cassius intensely dislikes Caesar personally, but he also deeply resents being subservient to a tyrant, and there are indications that he would fight for his personal freedom under any tyrant.
