The Go! Team - Rolling Blackouts (2011) [Dec. 10th, 2010|10:43 pm]

[Tags|, , , ]

Rolling Blackouts’ is the group’s third full-length and features vocal contributions from Deerhoof’s Satomi Matsuzaki and Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino as well as another bevy of sample-infused pop.
“I have a love-hate relationship with pop music,” Go! Team’s mastermind Ian Parton tells Spinner. “I’m obsessed with melody and catchiness, but I’m not interested in chart-topping aspirations, just having a good feel about something. When a song’s too poppy, I feel slightly guilty. I try to put some sort of barrier around it that says, ‘We’re not trying to be a pop band.’”
While the new songs retain certain elements of the band's earlier work, Parton also experimented with a new style. "Some of the songs have a pure, '60s jangly, almost Strawberry Alarm Clock/Byrds feel to them," Parton says. "I was trying to make it genuinely eclectic but without consciously [doing] so. I'm generally torn every day about what my favorite type of music is. ['Rolling Blackouts'] reflects that -- getting torn between all these different things.
