If you let YouTube play a mix of these guys, you may start to think you're listening to five different bands.
Django Django's debut album (self-titled and dropped in January) runs through an ecclectic mix of trippy, rockabilly, electro, chanting, dancing, marching, melting jams. They're half Talking Heads, one part Devo, one part Hot Chip and all original.
I'm quite a bit reminded of another British rock/pop/psycho quartet -- The Coral -- who's debut album showed intense promise (every song was good) but lacked any cohesion whatsoever. The Coral managed past this little issue to record one of my favorite albums of the '00s, Magic and Medicine ("Pass it on"). (A criminally underrated band in the States, btw... "Dreaming of You".)
But back to Django Django...
Energy, creativity... Hey -- two of my favorite non-tangible things!
I'm not entirely sure what to think. But they're entertaining me for now. So, success!
Happy Monday, jammers.
