Deep Dish

After a seven-year layoff when the group concentrated on DJ gigs, remix work, and their label Yoshitoshi, Deep Dish returns with George Is On. As it leaps from a rock-tinged love song for an unlikely dance capital ("Sacramento") to whacked-out robot breaths that ideally illustrate club confusion ("Everybody's Wearing My Head"), George Is On feels like anything but your typical collection of club hits. And for the big-ticket, grand finale, the band collaborates with Stevie Nicks for a dance-floor-propelled version of her classic song "Dreams." Here the Gold Dust Woman offers notes she hasn't hit so fantastically in years. It's just another curve ball from this delightfully loopy, left-field disc.
