Don't Stop the Power: The Go! Team's New Album "Rolling Blackouts"

A mash-up of styles that has something for everybody, The Go! Team is has won critical success from the start. From Brighton, they are considered a project as much as a band. The key to being a project is a matter of emphasis: musicians who want play music form bands; visionaries who conceptually imagine what they want the band they form to be, create projects. And they usually blow a whistle once or twice on each release. At least that's how I see it. The Go! Team's first first full-length album, Thunder, Lightning, Strike, was nominated for a Mercury, a career high for some, and hit a magnitude 8.7 on Pitchfork. I like this project.
