Holy Ghost! – “Do It Again” / “Some Children”

Betraying both my instant love of all things DFA Records and my complete inability to keep up with their releases, I finally listened to the self-titled debut album by Holy Ghost!, which passed me by a couple of months ago like a darting salmon past a hapless grizzly bear who just wants to sample as many genres of salmon he can despite the seemingly endless torrent of salmon .rar’s rushing past him in the overflowing digital river. I WIN AT METAPHORS

Needless to say, I took to it instantly. It’s that classic blend of disco-influenced electro and live instrumentation that LCD Soundsystem, !!!, The Juan MacLean, Hercules and Love Affair, and many others utilize to such booty-shaking success. “Do It Again” is the album’s leadoff track, and closer “Some Children” features croony dude Michael McDonald, who seems to be experiencing some weird second career as an indie rock collaborator, between this and his vocal turn on Grizzly Bear’s “While You Wait For The Others”.
