Perhaps the least Nebraska-sounding band ever to hail from the Cornhusker State, Omaha’s The Faint stood out from Saddle Creek labelmates Cursive and Bright Eyes like a vampire in a room full of hoodie-clad undergrads. Welding the robotic sexuality of Krautrock to squelchy synth-punk and occasional New Romantic moments, The Faint went straight to the hips of all the kids who only pretended to disdain the dance floor, a strategy revisited in great detail on recent anthology CAPSULE: 1999-2016. That said, the last word in mechanical soul remains with Gang of Four, the UK post-punk pioneers who expertly cross-bred leftist politics with sweaty white-boy funk on late-’70s albums like Entertainment and have lost little if any of their potency two or three generations later.
