Even the hippest music fans â€" the ones that lean against walls at concerts with their arms crossed â€" need to shake their rumps sometimes.

Vancouver’s You Say Party! We Say Die! provides the necessary momentum for starting a dance party in your bedroom.

Lose All Time is the followup to the band’s debut Hit the Floor, and it improves the band’s sound by combining dance with a heavy helping of punk guitar.

Lead singer Becky Ninkovic drips feminine but powerful vocals over trembling pianos and popping bass.

“Dancefloor Destroyer” proves Ninkovic can sing, not just belt out trance-like lyrics. This song provides a breather for the crowd tearing up the dance floor, before songs like “Our Hearts” or “Like I Give a Care” start the sweaty mess back up.

Lose All Time lets you lose yourself once and for all in its trippy, spaced-out dance punk. And that’s a good thing.
