Gang Gang Dance – “Glass Jar”

The excellent 11-minute “Glass Jar” sets the stage for longtime New York worldbeat experimentalists Gang Gang Dance’s Eye Contact. A decade later, it may very well be their strongest collection to date. Listen:

Eye Contact is out 5/9 in the UK and 5/10 in the US via 4AD. Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor lends his vocals to another winner “Romance Layers.” If you’re in NYC tomorrow (3/3), they’re playing a “decadent” art/music show at Angel Orensanz.
