The Go! Team return with their new album ‘Get Up Sequences Part One’ out via Memphis Industries and featuring the singles ‘Cookie Scene’, ‘World Remember Me Now’ and ‘Pow’.
On ‘Get Up Sequences Part One’, Ian, Ninja, Nia, Simone, Sam and Adam have created a musical world distinctly of their own making. A place where routine is outlawed and perfection is the enemy. Where Ennio Morricone meets The Monkees armed with flutes, glockenspiels, steel drums and a badass analogue attitude. We’re talking widescreen, four-track, channel hopping sounds that are instantly recognisable.
In The Go! Team's world, old’s cool, the future’s bright and melody is the star. Just check the second cut ‘Cookie Scene’ with a bouncing flute and junk shop percussion it introduces guest rapper Indigo Yaj, who delivers an old school vocal that continues this sonic trip. ‘Pow’ channels Curtis Mayfield and enter stage centre, the inimitable Ninja in full flow and you don’t stop, you won’t stop to this flute driven free for all.
By way of demonstrating The Go! Team’s old’s cool manifesto comes the ‘needle-in-the-red’ ‘I Love You Better’, a defiant message to an ex love, spelling out exactly how he’s messed up - and then there’s those steel drums. Following that comes the soda fountain soul courtesy of ‘A Bee Without Its Sting’, a groovy protest song that makes its point with a tambourine.
The musical wagon train then takes you into the widescreen windswept Western that is ‘Tame The Great Plains’, heading off into a polyrhythmic panorama that’s full of hope. Slappin’ you back to reality comes ‘World Remember Me Now’, a timely reminder that when you’re lost in the routine of life, you can always count on The Go! Team.
