El Guapo 

Fake French (Dischord)

Like its Washington, D.C., neighbor Trans Am, El Guapo executes its homages to '80s electro, synth-pop and postpunk with tongue-in-cheek flair. What's more, in El Guapo's clever sonic universe, there's room for electronics and accordions, for computers and oboes. Further setting El Guapo above its peers, all members sing instantly catchy melodies in unison. Whether creating mock-reggae songs using accordion and synths, investing Giorgio Moroder's "I Feel Love" with paranoia, or charming listeners' pants off with waltz-time prog-pop, El Guapo never fails to intrigue.
