They may be most readily associated with the frolicking dwarf jester of “The Safety Dance” video, but Men Without Hats were, at least, two-hit wonders. (Remember “Pop Goes the World”? It will become fleetingly relevant again in approximately one month!) Granted, there probably weren’t many clamoring for the Canadian synth-poppers’ current resurgence, but that’s part of what makes delightfully superfluous Love in the Age of War (Cobraside), the product of the band’s second reunion in 20 years (with frontman Ivan Doroschuk, the sole original member), such an unexpected blast. For all the ’80s rehashing of our young century, MW/oH’s trademark sound -— those chintzy, ultra-precise synths; dogmatically rigid new-wave rhythms; Doroschuk’s vehement, comically stern delivery — remains instantly recognizable and emphatically their own.
