Live Video: Django Django

While it’s hard to begrudge Alt-J their winning the Mercury Prize, many of us at KEXP were also rooting for another young U.K. group, Django Django. These London-based Scots have also created a stunning art-pop debut, though on their self-titled release, Django Django tend to favor warmer, more Americana and Eastern influences to Alt-J’s cooler Brit- and Afro-pop vibes. Both bands, though, help form a swelling new wave of music from the U.K., and on the heels of their Mercury Prize nom, we were psyched to get them into the Cutting Room Studios NYC this past October. The band stripped down their usual electronically enhanced sound for this an intimate live performance, so much so that they even used a cardboard box for their drum kit. Check out the videos now, filmed by our East Coast associates, Electric Tweed:
