Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence were born in Surrey, England, in the early 90s, but their hearts are in 1980s Chicago. As the duo Disclosure they’re at the forefront of a recent large-scale revival of the UK’s fascination with vintage house; that fascination goes all the way back to when the stuff was still contemporary, but it’s only intermittently been such a mass phenomenon. Their debut album, Settle (Island), draws inspiration from every subcell of house’s first few waves, whether melodically soulful or harshly jacking, and though Disclosure imitate the sounds of a scene that could be staunchly anticommercial (when it wasn’t busy chasing paper), they’ve become full-blown pop stars at home (after getting their start on fashionable indie labels such as Greco-Roman). It’s a great tribute to the original artists that Disclosure have landed such a reverent take on Chicago house at the top of the charts—and it’s an even more crucial tribute that their music is so good to dance to. —Miles Raymer T. Williams opens.
