COMING SOON: Gang Gang Dance, ‘Eye Control’

The Artist/Album: Gang Gang Dance, Eye Control (4AD, May 10)

The Details: Like the DJ sets of multi-instrumentalist Brian DeGraw, Eye Control is a sprawling affair, leaving trails of techno, funk, disco, pop, and space age something or other behind in its pursuit of post-everything bliss. The thing’s a grower in every way, too–if you can make it past the opening track’s patience-testing intro, that is. Succumb to the world that’s being painstakingly handcrafted here and you’ll find everything from a delightfully strange duet with Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor (“Romance Layers”) to the kind of stone-cold jams you’d expect Jim Henson to hear in his head during his Labyrinth days.

You can wade through “Glass Jar”‘s 11 minutes of madness below. It’ll also be available as part of a limited AA 12” single on April 4…
