Gang Gang Dance
$15

It's not that Gang Gang Dance have gotten any less weird, it's that the rest of us have finally caught up. The New York group capably mixes earthy sounds—the nomadic voice of Lizzi Bougatsos; drummer Jesse Lee's floor-bumping but graceful beats—with electronic noises that don't exist anywhere in nature. Brian DeGraw's synthesizers emit blocky, almost chintzy tones, but they practically insist that you embark on a spirit journey within their digital tapestry. Gang Gang Dance's latest, Eye Contact, is the kind of fully realized record that's attracted them a whole new crop of fans, and their polyglot sound contains some of the world's most populist sounds—Lebanese dabke, Cambodian romvong, Malian desert blues—within its skewed artiness.
