Amoeba Music (SF) | 1855 Haight Street, San Francisco, CA
The quartet, who met at art school in Edinburgh, first came to peoples’ attention a couple of years back when 2009’s double A-side single “Storm”/”Love’s Dart” laid the blueprint for a confident, adventurous, and psychedelically-bruised strain of art-rock that melds intangible electronic flourishes to the visceral rub of live instrumentation.
For the last four years, Django Django have been busy doing great things in the East London bedroom of producer and de facto leader David Maclean. The result of those great things is a great self-titled debut record, which has just been nominated for the Mercury Prize’s much acclaimed “2012 Album of the Year” award and releases on October 9th on Ribbon Music.
“Music’s so mad and widespread and varied, that eclecticism’s the only way to be for us,” reasons Maclean. “That said, I think you can draw a line through all the music we’re into. It’s about creativity and experimentation and the quest to find a new sound.”
