There’s a soul at the heart of Awolnation’s high-tech music

Electronic music isn’t generally thought of as folk music, and yet that’s kind of the best way to appreciate Awolnation’s full-length debut “Megalithic Symphony” (Red Bull Records). High-tech but not mechanical, it plays like a modern-day version of a vintage field recording. Amid the high-volume beats-per-minute workout, you’ll find quasi-gospel flourishes and spoken-word intervals that seem like found-sound objects.
