A noisy guitar kind of angle, mixed with Northern Soul, some Charlie Brown music, and Phil Spector girl groups.” -Ian Parton, The Go! Team
The Go! Team was one of the better shows I saw in 2006. If you ever have a chance to catch them live, do it. There is nothing out there like them. They will be releasing a single from their upcoming album on July 2nd. Currently untitled, according to Pitchfork, “…this album is going to be one hell of a party. Bonde do Role’s Marina Ribatski and Solex contribute vocals, as do the Double Dutch Divas, a troupe of veteran jump-ropers who toured with Run-DMC in 1985.
But that’s not all! The new Go! Team disc also features vocals from the Rapper’s Delight Club! Yes, that Rapper’s Delight Club– the group of elementary- and middle-school kids who are known for rapping over Sufjan Stevens and Jens Lekman songs. How perfect is that?”
