Gang Gang Dance Makes Eye Contact From All Directions

Gang Gang Dance's new album Eye Contact is the best showcase yet for an exquisite genealogy that combines fine textural reminiscence with African rhythms, Asian dance, electronica, industrial noise, and more, all of which you can put in a test tube for qualitative analysis. But don't let science get in the way of the experiment because you'll want to allow your emotions the freedom to love this magnificent art, which will grow the band's cult following by orders of magnitude. Besides, in the realms frequented by Gang Gang Dance, the centrifuge is just another instrument with potential for sound. This album is a definite yes.
