Gang Gang Dance: Saint Dymphna

Gang Gang Dance
Saint Dymphna
The Social Registry [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
If you are new to this band then after experiencing the opening instrumental track "Beby" you might not be sure where Gang Gang Dance will go but on the bands forth album the Brooklyn collective kick right into their style of space jam world tunes complete with the tribal beats. If you think Saint Dymphna is a retread of some previous work - think again because on songs like "Princes" the group kicks into a rocking rap and funky beat that kills out some great speakers while "House Jam" showcases the popsters in the group as it hums along. Gang Gang Dance are one of those bands that constantly are going to push boundaries and always offer up a good surprise in their records - Saint Dymphna does just that!

Key Track: "Princes"
