Daily Dose Pick: The Go! Team


On their third album, UK-based schoolyard-pop collective the Go! Team call on the frontwomen from Best Coast and Deerhoof for an extra blast of personality.

Rolling Blackouts features Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino on the sunny ’60s-meets-shoegaze gem “Buy Nothing Day,” while Deerhoof’s Satomi Matsuzaki handles the mic for “Secretary Song,” a track that could easily inspire an Austin Powers dance montage.

Elsewhere, the band’s trademark blend of old-school hip-hop, blazing horns, and playground chants returns in the form of “T.O.R.N.A.D.O.” and “Apollo Throwdown,” with breezy instrumentals and downtempo ditties providing a chance to cool down before you’re thrust back into the breakdancing circle.
