Django Django – “First Light (Ghost Culture Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

"First Light" is one of the first things we've heard from British postpunk group Django Django since their debut in 2012. Today, we're premiering a remix of the song from London producer Ghost Culture, who has channeled post-punk inclinations himself.

Django Django – “First Light”

Way back in 2012, the British postpunk band Django Django came out of the gate with a slinky, percussive, generally badass self-titled debut. That album took off to the extent that they carved out a space for themselves on the festival circuit and on certain radio playlists, but the band has released precious little… More »

Django Django – “Porpoise Song” (The Monkees Cover)

The Monkees were a made-for-TV band designed to capitalize on the Beatles' popularity and to engage in wacky sitcom hijinks. But in 1968, they made Head, a movie that's earned a rep as one of the deepest, weirdest psychedelic nuggets of its era. (Jack Nicholson co-wrote it.) British postpunkers Django Django are the latest act… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Increasingly, this is a weird column to write, since the list of things that fall under "music video" parameters includes big-budget extravaganzas, weird little no-money larks, clips of people's kids, stitched-together performance footage, barely-disguised product-placement commercials, and bits of barely-edited stock footage. Since all of these things can be pretty great on their own term… More »

Django Django – “WOR” Video

The amusement park clip for Django Django's "WOR" is a far cry from the jubilance of Mariah Carey's "Fantasy" or the Internet's "Cocaine" (although, that one's got a creepy factor to it). The Always Up For World Travel VICE Magazine indulged the band's recent infatuation with daredevils in India who perform a carnival trick… More »

Django Django – “Hand of Man” Video

David Maclean, drummer for London post-punkers Django Django, is the brother of John Maclean, a former multi-instrumentalist for the Beta Band who became a filmmaker when that band broke up.

Egyptian Hip Hop – “Love’s Dart” (Django Django Cover)

On Friday night, the arch and skeletal London postpunkers Django Django are playing a hometown show at Shepard's Bush Empire with another British band, the absymally named Egyptian Hip Hop. And perhaps to mark the occasion, Egyptian Hip Hop have recorded a dubby, underwater cover of the Django Django song "Love's Dart." Listen below. More »

Django Django – “Life’s A Beach (The Very Best Remix)”

This past year, the British band Django Django made a new for themselves with a self-titled album full of sparse, idiosyncratically arranged, weirdly catchy songs. And now the globally-inclined, British-based Afropop duo the Very Best has made their "Life's A Beach" even more idiosyncratic, giving it a delicately dancey remix. Listen to it below. More »

Django Django – “Hail Bop” Video

"Hail Bop" is an uncharacteristically spaced-out synthpop song from nervy British postpunkers Django Django. And in the song's new video, frontman Vincent Neff pushes a gigantic glowing orb through a pastel CGI video-game fantasyland. Daniel Swan directs. Watch it below. More »

Django Django – “Storm” Video

Back in February, we posted "Storm," the latest single from sparse, rigorous British postpunks Django Django. With its weirdly colorized VHS effects, the track's brand-new video is the sort of thing that could've seen heavy rotation on 120 Minutes back in the day. Focus Creeps direct. Watch it below. More »

Django Django – “Default” Video

Percussive UK post-rockers Django Django teased their self-titled debut with "Default" last December, and recently they came through with that track's accompanying clip. To make the video for "Default," drummer David Maclean printed out over 4,000 frames to add paint to them, and the end result is a vibrant, mesmerizing clip. Dan Brereton direct… More »

Django Django – “Default”

Django Django is a new London band who play a percussive, psych-inflected form of postpunk, and their new single "Default" has a refracted garage-rock stomp that reminds me of Clinic. Below, we've got the track streaming, and it really is recommended listening. More »
