The word “fun,” when used in reference to music, is usually synonymous with “bad.” Fans can overlook musical shortcomings if the performers appear to be having a good time. Not so in the case of Matt and Kim, who have the tunes to back up their goofy smiles. 2010’s Sidewalks was a big step up for the duo, in terms of both production value and songcraft, and while their followup, Lightning, doesn’t stray too far from the trail blazed by that record, the group’s overwhelming enthusiasm and knack for huge pop hooks make it impossible to be in a bad mood while listening to it.
