2010 is shaping up to be an excellent year for music lovers. i’ve already told you about the upcoming releases from the arcade fire and she & him. now i have some good news regarding another one of my favorite bands, the go! team.
there is something special about the go! team. their eclectic style of noise-pop guitars, 2 drummers, sampling, 70s funk, old school hip-hop, and cheerleader chants make their albums very original and fresh. it’s like a compilation album, except it’s one band, which makes their albums so enjoyable. anything the go! team touches, whether it be their own release or a remix, i’m tuning in.
their two albums, “thunder, lighting, strike” (2004) and “proof of youth” (2007), are in constant rotation on my iPod. obviously, i’m looking forward to their next release, which could be sometime in 2010. check out the article at stereogum for more info.
