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.

My local indie radio station played "Default" on their "new music" show and it was electrifying. Downloaded the album and it's practically on automatic repeat. Yes, calling them psychedelic is accurate but they defy stereotypes. With each song, I find myself thinking, "Great beat"--complex rhythms, original instrumentation (not just pounding on the snare). Harmonies and lyrics are hypnotic. Others in this comment section are more articulate than I am, so I leave the song details to them.

I seek out new music all the time and then I usually pick the tracks apart in my head ("that guitar riff is so overused" "ouch, the drummer just fell behind" etc.). With Django Django, I keep thinking, "wow, that bit was nice." Love them.

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!!!

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.

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!!!!
