Boomkat Product Review:
Now signed to Warp, Brooklyn weirdos Gang Gang Dance deliver their most striking statement to date, fashioning their polycultural grooves into coherent pop formats on cuts like 'First Communion', which combines Italo synth lines with math-rock riffs and yelped no-wave vocals. Gang Gang Dance are the answer to the question: how fashionable can a band get without sounding like box-checking idiots? It's a precarious ledge to teeter on, but snappy songs like 'Princes' and 'House Jam' go beyond pandering to any zeitgeist. Along with the likes of High Places and other such post-Animal Collective experimental pop groups, Gang Gang Dance are melding western pop influences with rhythms from farther a-field, all strung together with a fluidity and creativity that prevents would counter any accusations of cultural magpie-ism. Strong stuff, and an excellent acquisition for Warp.
