Dessert are possessed of the same kind of hip psychedelic indie intrigue that drew people to MGMT like moths to a flame almost ten years ago. Their songs so far seem to resolutely avoid conventional pop structure, making them feel like latter day Kanye West compositions in their whimsicalness. ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ is a fast frenetic trip through lysergic disco. It seems like the LA trio are on the verge of blowing up in spectacular fashion. Time to herald a new dawn for commercial band music.
