Editorial Reviews

Django Django who met at art school in Edinburgh, first came to peoples' attentions after a gradual migration to London a couple of years back. 2009's double A-side single 'Storm'/'Love's Dart' laid the blueprint for a confident, adventurous and psychedelically-bruised strain of art-rock that melds intangible electronic flourishes to the visceral rub of live instrumentation. The time since has been spent holed away, expanding upon that blueprint, seeing where they can push it. The impression one gets of Django Django is of a band laying down the first, meticulously measured borders on some vast map of a world that only they are privy to. Correspondent to that, each track is like it's own nation of harmonies, rhythms and textures. Django Django's story looks set to be a long and compelling one. By banging together their thirst for adventure and their exacting high standards, they've produced an album that seems to have everything, but on which everything never seems too much.

Format: Audio CD
Django Django are a british quartet that met in Edinburgh, Scotland while in art school. And from the sound of their self-titled debut they don't pull their influences from the usual bag of musical inspiration. The Beatles? Nah. Nirvana? No way. Try putting a genre on these guys. I dare you. There's no shoegaze, grunge, garage rock, 90s alternative, chillwave or math rock. These lads defy a label. Throw some names around like Syd Barrett, Animal Collective, The Beta Band and even Devo and possibly, just possibly, you might be on the right track.

The album opener is a short little instrumental that comes in like Tangram- era Tangerine Dream, which then leads us into `Hail Bop'. A nice slice of 60s psychedelic that would've fit nicely somewhere on Piper at the Gates of Dawn. If Pink Floyd doesn't butter your toast, relax. We're just getting started. `Default' comes in like a storm. Continuing on with the 60s psych flavor, a nice groovy retro guitar is added to the mix. With robot bleeps and blips this track has a real spacey, futuristic vibe. And thanks to the Devo-esque kinetic drums you'll want to hop out of your comfy spot on the couch and dance like it's 1981. At one point on the track `Skies Over Cairo' you'd swear someone was playing the desert level on Super Mario Bros. `Zumm Zumm' is like a b-side off of Merriweather Post Pavillion. It's like `Lion In A Coma' through a funhouse mirror. On several occasions throughout this kinetic, futuristic and funky-in-a-Devo-way album, Django Django seem to be carrying the torch that Animal Collective began running with on Merriweather. These are pop sensibilities run through a confectioners oven, sprinkled with sugar and hallucinogenics.

I'll start this review by saying that I grew up in the 80's so my views on new music are much different from what is now called indie rock, pop, or whatever. In a sea of mediocre artists I stumbled upon Django Django. Amazon has this listed in the following genres: Alternative Rock and Dance/DJ. It is not dance music in the club sense. It is psychedelic 60's with some modern elements.

I really like this album. I think it is time that bands start incorporating their own sound and style. Django has done that with this release so I'm not going to say it sounds like....

They have their own style. I recommend this especially for those that do like 1960's psychedelic rock.

I heard the track " Default" on the radio while on a business trip and it just sort of stuck with me. I looked these guys up and picked up their album. I must say, it does not disappoint. It so catchy and delightfully odd. It's like nothing else I listen to, and I enjoy it very much. Definitely check it out!!!

This has several stellar tracks. Gets a little dull and monotonous here and there, but great artsy indie rock. Gives me a Talking Heads kind of feeling, tho the vocals are quite different (chant-like, harmonized) and the guitar is not featured very prominently. Oftentimes dreamy and hypnotic. Lots of nice grooves.

For anyone who was, like me, wholly disappointed by this year's Yeasayer release, this album is definetly the redemption you have been seeking. I just don't know how I didn't find it sooner.
From the deliberate pacing of the album's "Introduction" into the song "Hail Bop", ridiculously catchy vocal harmonies weave with tremolo soaked guitars and driving percussion to make for one of the most infectious albums of the year!!!
The following track "Default" begins with a schizoid vocal loop over a beat that will have you begging for it to get out of your head (albeit, in a very good way) before launching into one of the most simplistic, but great, guitar riffs of this year.
As for the aforementioned vocal harmonies, the chorus of "Love's Dart" has one that could make James Mercer wish he'd included it on this year's The Shins album.
All of that said, this isn't a straight electro-indie-pop affair. On the contrary, it is an odd little beast that makes you roll with and embrace whatever hairpin turns it wants to take at a split-second's notice (e.g. "Skies Over Cairo"). Now that I think about it, no genre really describes this album accurately.
Infectious, challenging and, for me anyways, a great new discovery to end what has already been a great year for music!!!!

The first sound listeners will here on Django Django's selftitled debut is the chirping of crickets outdoors. The sound gradually gives way to an electronic machine and the harmonies of the band members' vocals. While this first track, "Introduction" might seem like just a prelude to the first proper song, it serves as a mission-statement of sorts for the band. Scotland's Django Django blends eclectic instrumentation with a natural, folksy form of songwriting -- it's simultaneously electronic and natural. The band's debut album covers considerable ground, from acoustic-based songwriting, to tribal electronic rhythms, to traditional Egyptian instrumentals. Luckily, it never feels alienating: the band's core songwriting is conventional and pop-centric.

Led by drummer/leader/producer David Maclean, DJANGO DJANGO sounds effortless through its many twists, turns, and diversions. While "Hail Bop" may have alluded to a band that relies more on mood than melody, the following "Default" seemingly comes from left-field. Originally released as a single last year, "Default" relies heavily on samples, and it echoes Strawberry Jam-era Animal Collective or recent Dirty Projectors. "Firewater" is an acoustic-heavy track that ends with a fantastic and psychedelic refrain. The other single from DJANGO DJANGO comes in the form of "Waveforms." The song isn't particularly any more catchy than the other tracks here, but it's one of the more infectious songs here.

One of the album's highlights, "Wor," begins with a surf-rock guitar riff amid blazing sirens. The robotic delivery of the vocals starts and stops the song constantly, but it's an undeniable toe-tapper.
