The Go! Team – Thunder, Lightning, Strike

[The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike]Now here’s something pretty different. In addition to the normal instruments, i.e. guitars and drums, the Go! Team also play the harmonica, glockenspiel, recorder, and banjo along side samples of trumpet lines while the vocals basically consist of cheerleader or double-dutch type chants. The result is something celebretory and triumphant, reminiscent of the music from a NES game or Rocky movie. And if you still need a reason to listen, the woman on lead vocals is named Ninja. Check out their performance on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. It might even be better than the album.
