Django Django - Django Django

The Tune for Today is: 

Django Django - WOR

Raise the phone
And drop it on the zone
To call you had to stip me to the bone

Don't slam the door
Wait out deep in hell
Took a chance on you and it's time to ring the bell

Side effects
Have you walking in a daze
Another fall out from this thing just radiates

You'll be the first
I'll always be the last
I'll duck and cover 'till the threat is past

Make your move now and try to win the game
But in the end it always stays the same
Don't shy away behind those lost in lines
I read between them almost everytime

Hold the fight
It's all I'm asking for
But the aftershock just shook me to the girl

Flick the switch
And watch it all around
Best get out before ...

Press the button now
And drop it on the zone
To call you ahd to strip me to the bone

Don't slam the door
Wait out deep in hell
Took a chance on you and it's time to ring the bell

Review by Jon O'Brien

Three years after their double A-side single "Storm"/"Love's Dart" prompted claims that they were the saviors of the guitar band scene, London-based Edinburgh four-piece Django Django finally commit their quirky brand of intelligent art rock to a full-length album. While the group risked missing the boat with such a lengthy wait, the recent success of fellow avant-garde purveyors Everything Everything andMetronomy suggests their refusal to rush has worked in their favor. Indeed, with indie audiences now eschewing the usual ramshackle "meat and two veg" outfits in favor of something a little more stimulating, its timing couldn't have been better. They'll certainly find plenty of intrigue here, as frontman Vincent Neff's sun-soaked harmonies weave their way around an array of jerky rhythms, spacy electronic bleeps, and acoustic folk-pop riffs on 13 tracks that sound like Franz Ferdinandthe Beach Boys, and the Beta Band (whose keyboardist John is drummer David's brother) have collided in one almighty experimental jam session. Initially, it's a thrilling listen, with the jangly surf-pop of "Hail Bop," the video-game funk of "Zumm Zumm," and the glitchy jazz-blues of "Firewater," the latter the only time they venture anywhere near the same territory as the legendary guitarist who inspired their moniker, all proving the band's hyperactive nature doesn't get in the way of an infectious melody. But halfway through, the band seem to run out of ideas, with several uninspired Wild West pastiches (theTarantino-ish foot-stomper "WOR," the twangy Americana of "Life's a Beach") and a meandering instrumental ("Skies Over Cairo") that borders on the gimmicky. Django Django may be just a bit too obtuse to repeat the success of their Mercury-nominated labelmates, but while it doesn't quite live up to their early hype, it's still an encouraging first offering, suggesting that they might do with album number two.
