Django Django - RIBBON
FILTER Grade: 77%
By Evan Wallis on October 16, 2012
Django Django’s self-titled debut is full of natural and synthetic sounds that are blended with an unnatural ease. A synth-filled beats swings in. A cricket chirps. Guitar riffs churn. People howl. The result is a vibrant 13-song album that is overlaid with chanted lyrics that sometimes turn dull. Thankfully, the British quartet’s musical toolbox is well stocked with everything from psychedelic surf rock to Arabian-inspired electro pop that allow them to hammer through the vocal monotony.
