Louisville’s VHS or Beta began as a noise-rock band. Then they discovered what they could do with a vocoder. On their 2002 debut EP, Le Funk, they made new-millennium dance music that owed as much to the past as to the future. On their just-released new album, Bring on the Comets, the quartet sprinkles the grooves with funk, new wave, and disco. It’s a sizzling mix that belies the project’s pedigree: Comets was recorded in Nashville and North Carolina on mostly old-school instruments. Yet the sound is as dizzy as anything fashioned by gadget-loving Frenchmen like Justice and Daft Punk over the past few years.
