5.0 out of 5 stars more of the same, but that doesn't matter when music is this exciting and intricate, 17 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Rolling Blackouts (Audio CD)
I fell in love with Thunder, Lightning, Strike because of it's great detail, catchy melodies and overwhelming energy. Proof Of Youth didn't disappoint, and after a wait of what felt like forever, Rolling Blackouts was announced, and oh boy, Rolling Blackouts didn't disappoint either.

Playful yet elaborate, the music is a torrent of energy and noise, with everything thrown in.

Opener 'T.O.R.N.A.D.O' is a noisy hip-hop slam, whilst Yosemite Theme provides sweet melodies and kitsch 60's film soundtrack songwriting.'Buy Nothing Day', the first single, along with title track 'Rolling Blackouts' provide shoegaze-y 90's indie, and 'Secretary Song' ropes in Satomi from Deerhoof to sing an excellent pop song that does what it's supposed to; sound like a Tokyo office. There are still traces 'old Go! Team', however, with 'Bust Out Brigade' and 'Back Like 8-Track' filled with the signature 'hip-hop meets noise pop meets northern soul' sound. '

Highly recommended.
