Editors’ Notes

The Scottish quartet Django Django is full of contradictions and ironies. The group's vocals are almost monotone, with a hint of robotic delivery, but the glassy sheen and layering (not to mention the songs’ melodic, chant-inflected backbones) manage to recall the harmonics of The Beach Boys and Grizzly Bear. There are plenty of guitars, yet the overall vibe on first listen is one that pulses more with digital gadgetry and minimalist tribal drumming. And the name: well, you really have to use a little imagination to hear any trace of guitar great Django Reinhardt, even in the hyperventilating buzz of “Wor” or the playful, slightly jazzy acoustic work on “Firewater.” Django Django filters several worlds of musical ideas into sounds that are propulsive, exciting, and sometimes surprising. The early single tracks “Storm” and ”Love Dart” have majestic, dreamy qualities that feel otherworldly in a Yeasayer kind of way. “Skies Over Cairo” brims with clattering drums, burbling synths, and organs bleating out vaguely Middle Eastern melodies. But tunes like the deadly catchy “Default” and the surf-stompers “Wor” and “Life’s a Beach” are real dance-floor burners.

Best Record of 2012

I'll admit, I got an early copy of this record 1 month ago and didn't purchase it on itunes... but I came back to itunes just to comment. This is easily one of the best if not THE best records of 2012. Echoes of Beta Band, Animal Collective, The Kinks, Yeasayer, and Tunng run throughout this, yet there is never one derivate moment. Django Django has really developed a niche sound unto their own which is nearly impossible these days with all the cross-pollination of music genres. They've managed to wrap up really good song-craft with way-out-there experimental noises and textures.... basically it's EXACTLY what I want to hear right now in August of 2012. Really excited for the coming Animal Collective, Yeasayer, Grizzly Bear, and Tame Impala records... but Django Django has set a high bar for them...

Great album

I haven't been this into a band since TVOTR. The whole package is here. Check out the music videos as well. Nothing new per se but I can't stop late listening. It's like the Zombies and Beck started a band with Fatboy Slim. Hail Bop and Default stand out.

"Are We Not Men?" meets "Pet Sounds"

Unlikely as it may seem, I do indeed find that much of "Django Django" sounds like an odd fusion of vintage Devo and the later, more arty Beach Boys. Just listen to "Hail Bop" before you disagree. Surprisingly, the blend works well. Once upon a time, this sort of quirky, catchy, tuneful experimentation was known as New Wave; now, I suppose we have to call it New Wave Revival, or perhaps Neo-New Wave. But labels aside, this is a solid album that shows a great deal of promise. Its only real "weakness" is the lack of one or two absolutely killer, unforgettable songs, but "Default," "Life's a Beach," and one or two more are engaging enough to warrant immediate replays, while the tier 2 tracks are enjoyable and interesting. (But perhaps leave the trite Orientalism of "Skies Over Cairo" to the early Cure.) Strong, fun debut.


Formed: 2008 in Dalston, London, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Although this psychedelic art pop quartet formed in Dalston, London at the end of 2008, the bandmembers had met earlier in the decade at the Edinburgh College of Art. Vocalist and guitarist Vinny Neff and drummer Dave Maclean played their first impromptu East London live dates with Duncan Marquiss of Glasgow's the Phantom Band on bass. Jimmy Dixon soon stepped in to replace him, however, and graphic designer Tommy Grace joined on keyboards to complete their core lineup. By the time of the release...
