Listen to: Django Django

“Listening to Django Django, I am taken back to when I first heard the Beta Band's The Three E.P.’s and Olivia Tremor Control's Dusk at Cubist Castle. Amazing, vaguely psychedelic pop, with a penchant for Beatle-isms, a pocket full of Pet Sounds and a pulsing minimalist disco beat.

Their name is a variation of Quando Quango, Factory Record's disco outfit from the early ‘80s. I'm hearing all sorts of odd references here: Arthur Russell, Flat Earth Society, Dick Dale, Radiophonic Workshop, DJ Rush, Bush Tetras, Elephant 6, and, yes, the aforementioned Beta Band. Best of all, these guys sound like they are having a blast making music: this record is resplendent with joyous, youthful sonic adventure.”
