iTunes Review

It’s fitting that Eye Contact — the fifth studio album from Gang Gang Dance — found a home on the esteemed 4AD label; after all, some of the imprint’s earliest signings were purveyors of the sort of mystical/global amalgam favored by Gang Gang Dance. After the Brooklyn quartet injected their own unique brand of experimental music with a tougher street vibe — highlighting the electronic over the organic on 2009’s Saint Dymphna — here the band polishes the edges to a softer finish, each track flowing easily to the next in a mix of down-tempo beats, Bollywood melodies and Middle Eastern-inflected rhythms. The epic opener “Glass Jar” is a fantastic intro to the journey ahead, morphing from a fluttering, primordial space-trip to a climactic landing, a splash-down against an intense palette of sunset color and galactic promise. One of the most muscular tracks, the breathless “MindKilla,” has been given the remix treatment by his royal highness, Lee Scratch Perry, and is well worth seeking out.

Breathtaking import from the future

I think this is GGD's best achievement to date, and it's instantly become one of my all time favorites. It's more electronic (and dare I say, more accessible) than their past work, but they pull it off with such an organic and complex form that it's sometimes hard to believe it was made by human beings. My favorite aspect is how densely packed and layered each song is with sound, kind of reminiscent of Skinny Puppy's "Too Dark Park", but within a more remarkable scope of concept. Anyway, it sounds like the future of music to me, and it makes me happy to be alive. I can't give it a better compliment than that.

eye contact is the voice

love it, please continue making great records.

An engaging album

I haven't heard an album this accessible yet interesting since Animal Collective's "Merriweather Post Pavilion". Well worthy of a listen and if you don't come back for more, I'd be dumbfounded..

Biography

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Since their formation in New York City's Brooklyn borough in 2001, Gang Gang Dance have earned an enthusiastic underground cult following by providing experimental, left-of-center music that uses a lot of electronics but is also very percussion-minded; percussion, in fact, is a prime ingredient of their sound. The group's eccentric work (which favors free-form structures and has never adhered to a standard verse/chorus/verse/chorus format) has been described as avant-garde rock, experimental rock,...
