The Go! Team: Proof of Youth
Buy! - (Sub Pop)
No further proof is needed than this irrepressible blast of youthful enthusiasm. While this British band’s 2nd album roughly follows the same sonic template as their excellent 2005 debut album – a hyperactive blend of old-school hip hop, classic Motown, bubblegum pop, cheerleader chants, cop show soundtracks and other fun sources – they’ve now simply gotten better at what they do, crafting one knockout pop song after another while relying a bit less on samples and using more live instrumentation and an inspired guest list ranging from Solex, Marina of Bonde Do Role and Public Enemy’s Chuck D. to a DC cheer squad and a New York jump rope dance troupe. Thanks to the Go! Team, this year just got a whole lot sunnier. 8/30/2007 - Don Yates
