Ninjasonik, “Art School Girls”

Ninjasonik, Art School Girls
Green Owl/Chief Records

This full-length from a trio of Brooklyn smart-asses is a puzzling conceit of hipster in-jokes. Ninjasonik is undoubtedly the Art School Girls in the title, flipping through cool indie styles like a wardrobe of vintage clothes. Get past the pretension, and some of the songs aren’t bad, particularly the thumping hip-house jams “Picture Party” and “Stir,” and the stuttering electro of “All My Friends.” “I don’t care about who you are and what you wear/I just want to party and forget all my cares,” raps Telli on the latter before sarcastically adding, “All my friends are in bands.”
