Right--Underworld are the most overrated electronic dance act ever, purveyors of lyrics like bad Mike Leigh on top of beats that usually stay on the side of the playground marked "efficacious," which in dance music is not exactly difficult. They've made a handful of nifty singles and zip else worth knowing much about. But damned if their RA080 podcast for Resident Advisor isn't smashing, especially the parts where timbre and sound design is all, which lucky for us is a whole bunch of it. It's up for a few weeks; whether you agree with me or not, it's worth hearing.
