pierrelefou I'm usually pretty skeptical when a bandleader kicks out the rest of the band and then records a solo album by themselves under the band's name. But man, if you gotta do it, do it like The Go Team has here. The Scene Between is absolutely fantastic kaleidoscopic pop a la XTC, Spookey Ruben, or the '80s paisley underground groups. It's totally missing the Sesame-Street-Hip-Hop of the previous albums, but when the pop sounds this good you don't even notice. Favorite track: The Art of Getting By (Song For Heaven's Gate).

Sven B. Schreiber Let me cite band leader, main performer, composer, and producer Ian Parton: "I wanted to make an album driven by melody and song writing because catchiness is the hardest thing you can do." Yeah, exactly. And he succeeded. The album is loud and obviously makes heavy use of dynamic sound compression - yet it goes smoothly into the ears thanks to excellent catchy songwriting. I'm indebted to "The Arches" for introducing me to the works of this band. Favorite track: Waking The Jetstream.

about

Last album Rolling Blackouts became a natural end chapter for The Go! Team with members splintering off into different musical projects (check Ian Parton’s involvement with new pysch band Whyte Horses and huge Jpop outfit Momoiro Clover Z, Sam Dook’s Cuz with Minutemen’s Mike Watt and Ninja’s solo endeavours), get married, teach, experience real life. Bandleader Parton took the opportunity to return to the working methods he’d used at the origins of the band – crate digging, trying to nail a feeling, writing and recording the album by himself.

Unlike debut album ‘Thunder, Lightning, Strike’ though, The Scene Between is an album about singing - about pushing the melodic side of The Go! Team sound. Parton elaborates “I wanted to make an album driven by melody and song writing because catchiness is the hardest thing you can do. Brill Building hooks but permeated with a kind of wobbly VHS feel”.

Parton had four rules before starting: melody would guide the song, samples would be treated as an instrument rather than a basis for the song, the production would vary across the song like flipping the dial on a radio and the singers must all be people he’d never previously heard of. Matching the song to the right voice wherever that voice was in the World, an outreach programme for bedroom-core DIY artists. Voices you’ll hear include Emily Reo (US), Samira Winter (BR), Atom (CN), Casey Sowa (US), Doreen Kirchner (US), Glockabelle (FR) plus an African gospel choir and an Atlantan vocal trio.
