It’s difficult to compare Lansing-Dreiden, a maddeningly obtuse, self-proclaimed ”multimedia art collective” to anything in current rotation; best to invoke the synth-pop pipe dreams of ’80s-era Euro collectibles like Yaz and Alphaville, or the glitter-bomb antics of early-aughts art-school jesters Fischerspooner. Though not quite as arresting as 2003’s The Incomplete Triangle, The Dividing Island is still by turns disarmingly woozy (”One for All”), sexily yacht-rocky (”A Line You Can Cross”), and hilariously pretentious (see, oh, most of the lyrics).
