DD has created a really magical and eclectic album for their third release. I have been listening to it constantly because not only is the album eminently listenable with soaring harmonies and irrepressible beats, but there are so many layers of sound and nuances to each song. The synth heavy title track and infectious Tic Tac Toe are clearly the stand outs from a pop perspective. But there are some hidden gems here too. "Champagne" features more guitar with vibrato in the mix than perhaps any other track, and a throw back to the psychedelic sound of the 60s, reminiscent of early Pink Floyd. The mesmerizing "Sundials" ponders the passage of time with striking piano chords and a surprisingly beautiful clarinet. The introspective and lush sounding "Real Gone" expresses feelings of regret and nostalgia as a person ages: "Look for the days we wasted...we could've done more." On the other hand, there really isn't anything more DD could have done to make this album a more enjoyable and exciting addition to their discography. Even the accompanying artwork and gorgeous poster included captures the feel of the album very well. They clearly have an artistic approach to their music which is rare these days. This is a magical album in all aspects. Give it a listen!
I am only given it 4 out of 5 because I am more of a fan of their superb surf guitar driven sound of the first release. If you like the first release, you will like Tic Tac Toe and the 60s vibe of Further. Marble Skys, Beam Me Up and In Your Beat are great synth driven songs. The beautiful relaxed harmonies remain in all the songs as does the quirky sound samples. Sundials is a litte different with a standard piano sound and clarinet sounds. Surface to Air was my least favorite song. Perhaps I was thrown by the vocals which almost sound like a female lead or back up. Perhaps it will grow on me, like their second release did.
Given the hooks of their debut, and the less than hoped for 2nd effort, I almost didn't bother with this release. Wow, i nearly blew it. This album probably doesn't have 2 timeless singles like the first, but cover to cover this album is their best.. The musicality is much much richer, has plenty of pop hooks, and even a solid ballad done Django style. I'm so glad I gave them a 3rd look and hope to see them live.
Not a bad 3rd collection by Django Django, but lacks the variety and "punch" of the first two CDs. An instrumental track and women vocalists track really cause a swerve in the set's offerings, but it closely keeps the momentum on the other tracks.
On their 5th album, this British band plays bouncy/happy synth/guitar pop with hooks out the wazoo and just enough muscle & psychedelic surprises to keep things interesting. These are lighthearted, sunny summery melodies with clap-along rhythms, electronic flourishes and touches of acoustic folk. Includes contributions from members of Slow Club, Metronomy. Sometimes recalls bands like 31Ø8, The Phantom Band, Eyelids, Maximo Park, Field Music, XTC, China Crisis, Hot Chip. “Marble Skies” is catchy, fun, accessibly innovative pop music that’s ultimately, undeniably addictive. Recommended.
