Every hipster music blog I’ve seen says The Go! Team can’t be categorized, then proceeds to try to categorize them. I can see why. Tunes like “T.O.R.N.A.D.O.” and “Apollo Throwdown” layer female rap vocals with hip-hop and breakbeat rhythms under brassy samplecraft that recalls the best work of the Art of Noise. “Secretary Song” and “Ready To Go Steady,” on the other hand, fuse ’60s go-go and cutesy Japanese pop—imagine Phil Spector producing Pizzicato Five. Weird—in a very, very good way. (Memphis Industries, thegoteam.co.uk)
