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.

Rare is it to find and album so listenable from start to finish. A band name who you like to pass around in hopes that others might find its magic... and yet still not become too popular to leave you behind. Golden stuff.

I don't normally review music, but this album was a refreshing break from most of what I've been listening to.

I'm not sure how I'd describe Django Django, but some words I might use are: Dissonance and Harmony, psychedelic, up-beat, relaxed...

They have an electronic vibe that I can not put my finger on, but has a worldly and somewhat 60's feel.

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.

Heard the song "Default" on the radio, and really enjoyed it. Decided to get the whole album, and I am really happy with it. A great surprise enjoyment for the entire album.

Inventive, lighthearted, if odd, pop, with great harmonies. Yeah, the singer sounds kind of like a robot, but they manage to somehow nail all of those harmonies anyway.

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!!!
