Wet From Birth

Smirking all the way, the Faint prove that 1980's dance-funk
revival extends well beyond New York and London on ''Wet From Birth'' (Saddle Creek), a 10-song, 34-minute album. Singing about anything from male lust to the clinical details of gestation and birth to paranoia and terrorism, the Faint is never less than snappy. The band puts its own mark on those 1980's punk and electro grooves; the way that a piano note ricochets behind the beat in ''How Could I Forget'' is just one ingenious touch among hundreds.
