Album of the Day

Django Django
Django Django
Ribbon, 2012

Django Django sounds like an old, dusty Southern blues record as reimagined by Yeasayer. By a band from London? Such a weird venture could have turned messy, but each of the album's thirteen surreal soundscapes is rarely anything but completely fun. For evidence, look no further than one of the year's catchiest singles, the sci-fi Eagles of Death Metal stomp "Default". Their schtick sounds like something of a novelty, but Django Django display enough stylistic range and songwriting ability to suggest that their oddball aesthetic might have some legs. The mid-album trifecta of "Love's Dart", a clip-clopping electro beat with a sleepy flower-power melody, "WOR", a driving, retro-fied take on surf-rock revivalism, and "Storm", a minimalist indie-pop gem, establish Django Django as one of the more inspired and well-executed debuts to see daylight recently.
