With Baby Monster
When word came that British nu-rave/electro-rock darlings Klaxons were recording "Surfing the Void" with producer Ross “the Godfather of nu-metal” Robinson in Los Angeles, the Brits barely knew what to think. Freak out or be titillated? Write them off or write them up with even more exclamation marks and adulation? Well, they’ve definitely left the rave in favor of alt-rock that strives toward art-rock, and the Robinson pairing seems to have bolstered their sonic boldness. With Baby Monster.
