It helps that Dang has quickened her layering pace. Where a few "Hukam" songs lingered past the five-minute mark, nothing on "In Auspices" drifts past four and a half, and they get to Dang's melding of sitar, electronics, and voice right off the bat. An exhale of beats and voice breathes 'Arrange It' to life as a seductive whorl, equal parts dream pop and far-left-field R&B. 'Need to Fall' brazenly marries a sinewy sitar line to a nearly Big Black-insistent drum-machine pattern to yield a woozy dollop of ear candy. 'Kissed by the Fire' is Dang's most dance-floor-ready song to date, with its slyly skittish beat, its synth baseline, and Dang's vocal melody that circles around the groove like a house-track hook. That DJs probably aren't crate-digging Bandcamp for South Asian-inflected avant-pop for 6 a.m. come-down jams is their loss.
