The Ivy League-educated New Yorkers’ second album continues their successful mission to place African music at the epicentre of indie rock, even introducing steel drums to the band’s shimmering high-life sound. Differing from their 2008 debut ? it’s smoother, less spiky, with less guitars and elements of everything from synthesiser loops to flirtations with dancehall, ska and disco. Sounding a bit like Paul Simon’s Graceland being covered by 90s geeks They Might Be Giants.
We love these guys in the office, having been big fans since day one and with suport from the fantasyc Ratatat this is one hell of a line up.
