Django Django perform in The Current studio

British rockers Django Django have forged a stunningly inventive sound in their short existence, splitting the difference between vintage rock riffs 'n' rhythms and a contemporary, arty strain of electronic psychedelia. Yet this flair for sonic innovation is indulged minimally and subtly, allowing the band's strong songwriting skills some breathing room.

The London-based quartet's self-titled debut album, released last year, was recorded in a band member's bedroom for £90. After the accolades that album has received and the buzz it has generated, the band will likely be able to aim for higher production values on their second full-length, which they plan to begin recording after they return from their current US tour.

In town for a sold out First Ave show on Saturday, March 16, Django Django stopped by The Current studios to chat with host Mac Wilson and play a few songs.

Songs played: "Love's Dart," "Hand of Man" and "Firewater."
