Django Django Django Django on 2LP + MP3 Download Card w/ Bonus Tracks
The US release for Scottish four-piece Django Django is finally set! The band’s much-lauded debut album, Django Django, will be released in the fall of 2012. After playing SXSW and two sold-out New York shows in March, Django Django return to the US for a fall tour in support of the record.
After meeting at art school in Edinburgh, Django Django’s David Maclean (drummer and producer), Vincent Neff (singer and guitarist), Jimmy Dixon (bassist) and synth operator Tommy Grace spent four years working in Maclean’s East London bedroom on their self-titled debut.
They first came to people’s attentions after releasing the double A-side single “Storm”/”Love’s Dart” in 2009 which laid the blueprint for a confident, adventurous and psychedelically bruised sound that melds intangible electronic flourishes to a visceral rub of live instrumentation. They’ve spent the time since expanding upon the blueprint, seeing where they can push it.
Since Django Django’s self-titled album was released overseas earlier this year, the band has had an incredible run, including a performance on “Later…with Jools Holland,” rave reviews across the board amongst UK press (8/10 in NME, 5/5 in The Guardian, 4/5 in Uncut, Q, The Times & MOJO), and exceptional feedback on their debut performances in the U.S. The band has already received a slew of praise and we know it’s only the beginning.
The double LP edition is housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket and comes with a MP3 download card that includes 4 bonus tracks available on the CD version.
“Self-titled, debut collection (consists) of fabulously catchy synth-pop.” - NPR
