Is Ian Svenonius done with old people? These days, the D.C. frontman seems to prefer hangin’ with the kids—-like his young associates in Chain & the Gang, and now, Argentina’s Las Kellies.

On the South American post-punk trio’s brand-new album Total Exposure, Svenonius crops up on the minimal, Y Pants-like song “Two Types.” The lyrics sound very Ian: “There’s two types that I like/Yeah, there’s two/Well there’s two types/That I like/And one’s you.”

I haven’t heard the whole album yet, but I dig Las Kellies’ “Melting Ice,” which reminds me of the funky post-punk on that great Compass Point compilation.

Listen to “Two Types” and “Melting Ice,” below.
