Django Django, Night Moves

BRANDON WIDDER
9 pm., Wednesday March 20 | $15.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 

[FOLKTRONICA] London’s Django Django must find it difficult to subdue the endless comparisons to Brian Eno, Hot Chip and the Beta Band, especially since drummer David Maclean actually shares ties with the latter. Its music pleasingly pits the rustic nuances of pre-psychedelic rock against the futuristic, Blade Runner-esque hubbub of the ’80s. On their self-titled debut, Django’s members offer sprightly, groove-steeped jams laden with surf-rock guitar, pulsing rhythms and otherworldly keyboards. Guitarist Vincent Neff sings about everything from nature to getting belligerently smashed, and although the music is essentially minimalistic in its approach, it still somehow manages to reach multifaceted heights you didn’t think possible. Far out, man!
