The Go! Team, 'Proof of Youth' (Sub Pop)

7
Proof of Youth
Critical Mass
Label: Sub Pop

by David Peisner

The Go! Team are unabashed kitsch merchants, trafficking in all manner of retro cheez-pop, but the enthusiasm they bring to their infectious second album simply can't be faked. Live instruments have replaced the samples that fueled their debut, resulting in a more fluid, if still absurdly amateurish, sound. The influences range from MC Lyte–style old-school hip-hop ("Grip Like a Vice") and demure PBS theme music ("My World") to pulsing Starsky & Hutch action sequences ("Titanic Vandalism") and exuberant, playground jump-rope chants ("Universal Speech").
