Mondo Beyondo


If Ursula 1000 multi-instrumentalist, DJ and mastermind Alex Gimeno hadn’t invited Fred Schneider to sing on his latest album, the B-52s frontman might have known instinctively to show up anyway. Music this fun demands the kind of kooky enthusiasm Schneider brings to “Hey You!” a Technicolor dance track stuffed full of fuzz guitars, handclaps, whistles and honking car horns. Elsewhere, the Brooklyn-based Gimeno gets down with ’60s spy-flick guitars, mod-bash beats, bachelor-pad organs and sexy female vocals cooed in foreign languages. Mondo Beyondo mixes the exoticism of Stereolab with the accessibility of Gnarls Barkley, shakes well, and serves up the contents in a martini glass.
