The mind is a funny thing, especially when it comes to how we connect things. From now until the end of time, Django Django and Egyptian Hip Hop will always be connected and I’m not quite sure why.
By this point I’d expected that we all be revelling in the brilliance of EHH’s debut LP, but instead we’re talking about the masterful first album from the Djangos (out 30 January). Although some of the initial buzz around them seems to have worn off, this is a record that’s not to be missed. Whilst not quite as experimental as their early singles, they manage to push the envelope of art pop to weird and fascinating places. If you’re tired of dubstep like I am, this should do the trick.
The band is doing a short tour, starting Friday 17/02 in Norwich.
