Circle the track over and over

99% perspiration, period
I dig the Go! Team‘s new record, Rolling Blackouts. What’s interesting about this one is that the best tracks are actually songs. Like one with choruses and verses and lyrics and everything. As much as I loved the group’s pump-up jams, it’s cool to see them venture into more straightforward pop terrain.

The best example of this is “Buy Nothing Day,” which features vocals from Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast. This song is pure pop rock gold.

Head to Exclaim! to read my review of Rolling Blackouts.

I mean it more than anyone

Love thyself
The Go! Team‘s Thunder, Lightening, Strike is one of the most joyously danceable albums in recent memory, except it’s not that recent anymore, since it came out back in 2004.

Here’s the outfit’s new single, “T.O.R.N.A.D.O.,” which is an upbeat, horn-punctuated rager that’s bound to invite any number of cheesy ‘force of nature’ puns. A whirlwind of rhymes! A swirling blast of beats! Bill Paxton-style chants! Helen Hunt!

This will be on the awesomely-titled Rolling Blackouts, due out in January. Thanks to Pitchfork for this.
