Music Review: “Giant” by Django Django



From Django Django’s Born Under Saturn


Liner notes: Known for unlikely blends, the foursome combines sunny vocal harmonies, funky grooves, and surf guitar to refreshing effect on its sophomore album.

Behind the music: The musicians—drummer David Maclean is the brother of Beta Band’s John Maclean—met at the Edinburgh College of Art. And no, it’s not a Quentin Tarantino reference.

Check it out if you like: Eclectic Brit-poppers like Blur and Arctic Monkeys.

We couldn’t find a video for Giant online, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a feel for Django Django. The above video is of “Reflections” one of the other songs off the band’s new album Born Under Saturn.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
