about

Rolling Blackouts is epic and bratty, subtle and sweet. From the two-minute opening Ninja led slammer of "T.O.R.N.A.D.O.", to the album's title track featuring Bethany Best Coast and Piano Magic’s Angèle David-Guillou, an all female feedback-swept white noise sand storm answer to "Some Velvet Morning", it's all restless and relentless energy. Bethany also lends vocals to "Buy Nothing Day," a hyper girls-in-the-garage jangle, while Dominique Young Unique dominates the psych hip-hop call and response of "Voice Yr Choice" and goes tag team on the string-led space race of “Apollo Throwdown”. Satomi leads the way on “Secretary Song” evoking an asymmetrical Tokyo office with elevators opening on the beat, typing in time and phones ringing in rhythm. "The Running Range" is a fuzz-bass driven Morricone-esque gospel song recorded in a South London church and with "Ready To Go Steady" the Team deliver their first straight ahead love song, a nimble pocket rocket symphony voiced by Lispector.

The Go! Team have upped their own ante, giving us a record that is by turns their most refined, most kick ass, most melodic and most effortlessly effusive record yet.
