Continuing in the tradition of alternative dance-pop exemplified by The Dandy Warhols in the late '90s and early '00s, Pink Skull stakes its claim in effervescent electronic noiseplay. Philadelphia DJ-and-producer duo Julian Grefe and Justin Geller, known for their adventures in mixing and remixing, have expanded into a live band for which "programming" still plays a necessary role. Traipsing gleefully through styles like disco-punk, acid house and psychedelic tropicalia, the group's recent Psychic Welfare finds Pink Skull showcasing a tight, focused sound.
