[GINGERBREAD HOUSE] There’s a good reason most house music hovers around 120 beats per minute. Any faster, and you start to feel techno’s incessant drive grinding away at your teeth. Any slower, though, and you’ve got sway-worthy pop music. Purse Candy does what few in this country have done: makes slightly slowed down melancholy pop-house beats that move more than just torsos. Frontman Matthew Ellis sings over synths and soft guitar riffs, and he sounds like the indie-house version of Twin Shadow, his voice alternately wavering and straining. “Let’s run away/’Cause Mom and Dad fight too much,” Ellis whispers tweely on the childlike “Red Wagon.” The words and formula are simple, but the execution is as surprising as finding a king-size Snickers bar in your mom’s handbag.
