No stopping them.Itís been a long time between drinks for Brightonís DayGlo, boom-bap electro rockers cum bubblegum/psych popsters. Their sophomore LP is no less of a Technicolor mash-up than their 2004 Mercury Prize-nominated debut, but demonstrates considerably more control and a sharper focus, with tracks like the sheerly lovely My World and the sweet I Never Needed It Now So Much providing relief from their brash euphoria. The Go! Team are clearly committed to the lo-fi, DIY aesthetic, but with songs as strong as these itís rather a shame they didnít apply a little depth and finesse to their production.
The Go! Team - Proof Of Youth, released 10 September on Memphis Industries.
