Only 15 and 18 when they released their debut single, the Burial-influenced “Offline Dexterity,” British brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence of Disclosure certainly made for unlikely dance heroes. Now, barely two years later, the duo has not only convinced the hipper DJs, critics, and tastemakers of their prowess, but also the public at large, topping their home country’s album chart with the recently released Settle. They deserve it: The record sits in that irresistible zone between “familiar” and “new” and never gives it up, drawing on house and garage and keeping you on your feet throughout. This evening, make sure to pace yourself, as openers TNGHT and Julio Bashmore happily attempt to tire you out.
