Trasspassers is a duo from Fayetteville made up of Greg Moore and Michael Jordan, who make brightly colored, squiggly keyboard jams. "Orrinbee," from the group's recent EP "No Dumpling," sounds at times like an Ariel Pink song recorded onto a primitive sampler that's slowly dying, while "Time is Right" echoes MGMT's earlier goodtime electro pop and the ecstatic singing of Animal Collective's Avey Tare. "6am" is a bit on the darker side, starting off with a skittery drumbeat before melting into chopped and screwed vocals and burbling synths.

Check out "Time is Right" below.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
