[VITAL CONNECTION] For all the ’80s revivalist trappings residing at the heart of Beat Connection’s music, the quartet deserves credit for trying—and mostly succeeding—to bring glassy synth melodies and low-saturated drum-machine beats into a modern context. And heavens, does this group have a knack for melody. The latest album by this Seattle-based outfit, The Palace Garden, is blooming with earworm hooks and a slightly tropical flavor that runs counter to its sodden birthplace. The cut of this music is aimed straight at the heart of a dance floor lit by disco balls and multicolored lights.
