Smart electronic music to sweat to

Need music to keep me going at the gym. The caveat is that it isn't mindless pop music, but something with some complexity.

I am interested in broadening my horizons. I hear a lot about Chvrches and other groups. I am looking for something that isn't "too hipstery" but also something that isn't the same beat for 5 minutes straight. Something with vocals would be preferable.
I have lots of stuff like Boards of Canada and such that is too ambient.
I'd prefer an album to random tracks. Here are some examples of what I am looking for
How to Destroy Angels - 2nd album
The Knife track "full of fire" (much of the knife and fever ray aren't uptempo enough)
Radiohead - ideoteque
I am aware of all of the spinoffs of the above bands/members
I am very sensitive to mindless pop music and would like something with some depth.
Thanks in advance
