After two promising singles, British producer Digital Farm Animals throws a third into the pile and releases his debut Bugged Out EP. While it would have been nice to squeeze another song or two out of the set, new addition “Buggin'” makes up for a lack of volume, sounding like the funky, paranoid lovechild of Rick James and George Clinton, stomping with 80s-synth-energy to its massive chorus. Better to leave them wanting more than overstaying your welcome. DFA does precisely that on his debut set, whittling his marriage of retro influence and modern pop sensibility to the satisfying essentials.
