Ist etwa die Zeit für The Go! Team im Jahre 2004 stehengeblieben? Gleich zu Beginn dieses Get Up Sequences Part One möchte man darauf schwören, wieder mitten in einem der großartigen Schelmenstücke in der Art des Thunder, Lightning, Strike gelandet zu sein, dem Debütalbum dieses Kollektivs aus Brighton. Denn es ist so etwas wie ein Schlemmer-Cocktail aus 80er-Jahre-Hip-Hop-Vibes, Girls Group, Funk mit einer kleinen Spur Punk, Schulorchester und Teenager-Pop. Das vor allem wie ein total unregelmäßig zusammengeflicktes Patchwork daherkommende Universum von Ian, Ninja, Nia, Simone, Sam und Adam hat einen ganz eigenen Charakter. Eine Klangsignatur, die in jedem einzelnen Song dieses sechsten Albums explodiert. Get Up Sequences Part One vertreibt im Handumdrehen die postpandemische Verdrossenheit, springt beliebig hin und her, vom Boden zur Decke und gegen die Wand und wieder zurück. Go! Team sind nämlich weit und breit die Einzigen, bei denen wir gleichzeitig Steel Drum, Flöte, Drumcomputer, Rap-Beat, Bollywood-Sound, Bläserfanfaren, Glockenspiel, etwas Motown und Paukenschlag zu hören bekommen! Die Feel-Good-Platte mit dem Sommersound des Jahres 2021 schlechthin, die alle anderen weit hinter sich lässt. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

If the Go! Team’s second album, Proof of Youth, sounded like they were remaking their debut, Thunder, Lightning, Strike, Rolling Blackouts sounds like they are remaking Proof of Youth. Like that record, this is filled with guest appearances, great songs, and a sense of collaboration that was missing from the sample-based first record. However, while Proof had a few weak points, Blackouts has practically no flaws at all. It’s a thrillingly joyous and fun record that bursts out of the speakers with the call to arms of "T.O.R.N.A.D.O." and rarely lets up. If you thought that maybe the initial idea behind the band as concocted by Ian Parton, the sample-based blending of hip-hop, soundtrack music, indie rock, and hooky pop songs, was going to run out of steam or start to sound forced, you’d be way off. Way, way off. Parton seemingly used the time between albums to line up perfect collaborators, tweak the sound just enough to give it more life, and with his core band write a batch of wonderfully realized songs. From jangling, jet-powered rock tracks, schoolyard-with-strings hip-hop battle jams, and widescreen movie theme ballads to bubblegum sticky pop songs and rumbling gospel throwdowns, Parton and crew can conjure up almost anything and make it sound just right. The vocalists Parton chose fit just right, too. Dominique Young Unique’s gum-smacking nonchalance and sassy rapping on “Apollo Throwdown” and “Voice Yr Choice” are a nice contrast to Ninja’s enthusiasm and fire, Deerhoof’s Satomi Matsuzaki’s wide-eyed innocence sweetens the work-hating anthem “Secretary Song,” the long-running lo-fi genius Lispector’s singing on the ridiculously catchy “Ready to Go Steady” should inspire everyone to check out her albums, and the London African Gospel Choir gives the record some class on “The Running Range” (which also features some fun yelping from Marina Gasolina). Best of all is the feature for Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, who in a feat of seerdom not known since the days of Nostrodamus, Parton contacted long before she became a ubiquitous poster girl for weedy indie rock. “Buy Nothing Day” is the record’s highlight, as her vocals and the song combine to make the kind of song that would be a huge pop hit if the radio would only allow it. The near-perfect combination of guests, brilliantly constructed songs, and sounds that fit together like a multi-colored Lego wall of sound make Rolling Blackouts something very special. © Tim Sendra /TiVo

The Go! Team burst onto the indie scene like the proverbial breath of fresh air. Their music, built on samples of schoolyard chants and TV theme rockers, made most everything else sound gray and a little timid in comparison. Thunder, Lightning, Strike, their debut album, was a brilliant record and Proof of Youth can't help but suffer when stacked up against it. Indeed, it might take a fews spins before you can shake the feeling that you're listening to outtakes from Thunder, Lightning, Strike, but once you do, the album reveals itself to be another, though slightly lesser, stroke of greatness. Rather than relying heavily on samples this time out, bandleader Ian Parton goes with a live band approach with samples blended in. It results in a slightly more organic sound, but one that's still recognizably the Go! Team. Meaning that the master tapes were dragged behind a car for a couple of miles and left out to melt in the hot August sun. The resulting tinny and muddy mess may be enough to give audiophiles the hives, but to everyone else it's an exciting mess that fairly explodes out of the speakers in a hissy rush of sound. The drums pound, the horns blare, the guitars wail and clatter, the vocals shout to be heard; it's a whirling fun house of music. Which would be enough to recommend the album, but the songs themselves are equally as impressive. "Grip Like a Vice," which features raps from female pioneers Lisa Lee of Cosmic Force and Sha Rock from Funky 4 + 1, is the equal of anything on Thunder; "Doing It Right" has lovely verses sung by guitarist Kaori Tsuchida to match the instantly hooky chorus; and "Patricia's Moving Picture" shows a sensitive side the group would be wise to investigate in the future. Taking the place of the samples on Proof of Youth are many guest appearances. Along with Solex's appearance, Marina from Bonde do Rolê sings on the stomping "Titanic Vandalism," two rap crews from opposite ends of the age spectrum (daycare cuties the Rappers Delight Club and real old-school jump-roping rappers the Double Dutch Divas) are on board for "Universal Speech," and Chuck D of Public Enemy raps on "Flashlight Fight." Only the latter guest spot feels like a gimmick. Chuck D's rap isn't as bad as his "Kool Thing" misadventure, but it sounds wildly out of place next to Ninja's exhortations and the old-school lightheartedness that prevails elsewhere. No doubt the idea of working with one of their heroes was a thrill for the band, but the album would have been better off without the song. One misstep isn't enough to ruin things, though, and if you can forgive them for basically making the same album again, Proof of Youth is a pretty solid continuation of some of the most exciting, innovative sounds around. Next time they'll have to stretch some, but for now the Go! Team is doing it right. © Tim Sendra /TiVo

After the promotional cycle for their Rolling Blackouts album ended, Go! Team guiding force Ian Parton called a band meeting. At the end of it, Parton was the only member of the team still in the band full-time. This return to the original way of working meant that Parton was back to being in total control and he also needed to find some new vocalists. Eschewing the high-profile cameos of the previous two albums, for The Scene Between Parton sought out and selected female vocalists he didn't know or hadn't heard before. He also put more focus into the songwriting and production than before, aiming to create a different feel and sound from track to track. It makes for a listening experience that is at once familiar and also pretty different. The hallmarks of the Go! Team sounds are mostly in place; the album doesn't lack for thundering beats, sunshiny samples, and layers of sound crashing brightly against one another. A little less clustered than the first two albums, a little fuzzier than Blackouts, the Scene Between succeeds in its aims. Going from track to track isn't exactly like flipping down a radio dial, but each song has a unique feel. And it's more like an album of songs than any previous one, with stuff like the ultra-sugary indie pop-inspired "Waking the Jetstream" and the bubbling shoegaze blast of "Blowtorch" sounding like they could be radio hits. The jangling girl group ballad "Did You Know?" and dream pop confection "Reason Left to Destroy" also have lots of stand-alone value. Parton doesn't totally leave the classic Go! Team sound behind, with "The Art of Getting By (Song for Heaven's Gate)" and the title track displaying lots of old-school swagger and a very G-Team way of sampling. These nods to the past are comforting and provide a base for the rest of the album, and the inclusion of short instrumental snippets is a nice touch that shows off Parton's sound-manipulating skills. What The Scene Between is, though, is a departure -- it's a pop album at its core and it works. There's a lightness to the sound that gives the record a fresh-faced and innocent feel; the vocalists Parton chose are all up to the task (and inspire the listener to seek out their other projects); and the songs have a brisk, joyful skip to their step that's impossible not to love. Especially if you're a fan of blown-out, slightly overloaded pop music, the kind that fills the speakers, ears, and hearts with warmth and happiness. Since Thunder, Lightning, Strike is an absolute classic, The Scene Between isn't the Go! Team's best, but it is an impressive new start that consolidates most of their strengths in a bright shiny ball and sends the band shooting off in a brilliant new-ish direction. © Tim Sendra /TiVo
