The Go! Team – “The Only Thing New Is U Finding Out About It”

At the top of this year, the Go! Team released a new album, Semicircle, and they’re about to embark on a North American tour. In celebration of it, they’re releasing a very celebratory-sounding track called “The Only Thing New Is U Finding Out About It.”

“[The song] is an expansion of an idea from a remix I did years ago,” the band’s Ian Parton explains in a press release. “It builds around a looping Steve Reich-esque kalimba line, with a syncopated steel drum response jumping in the gaps, and by the end a full-on choir have joined in this weird math rock African/Asian hybrid thing. The title is inspired by a Mike Watt quote and a sentiment I’m into: that it’s up to you to go out and track down the good shit that’s out there.”
