Gang Gang Dance

Brooklyn's brightest and hippest continue to embrace art-spattered. Gang Gang Dance are one of the bands, along with the likes of Animal Collective and Yeasayer, selected for true unequivocal praise. Their last full-length, 2005's God's Money, was hailed as an experimental album of real depth and wonder. Frontwoman Liz Bougatsos is an irrepressible, incandescent figurehead. The band seems to bristle and is constantly shooting off in new directions, shifting dramatically from something akin to a turbocharged, artfully mangled take on Europop, to a CAN-style groove.
