#1: The Go! Team. Thinking about getting the CD. Any good? Worth it?

#2: A band I've never heard of that I caught on internet radio called The Cribs. I heard a song called "Mirror Kissers" and then checked out the album on itunes. Sounds promising, but before I bought it I thought I'd see if any of y'all knew about it.

Thanks

I can vouch for The Go! Team. But I'd say if you can find the import, go for that. Some samples that were on the Euro version had to be removed from the U.S. version due to clearance. But it's a great album. It's got the same feel as instrumental hip-hop, except it's done by a live band. Sorta similar to The Avalanches...like Prefuse meets Jackson 5

the go team is very good. i have the import as well so can't speak to the domestic release. but that cd is a fun cd...something it seems my collection needed (according to my gf). at any rate, i think you'll really like the Go! Team. They combine hip hop/dance beats, with samples, cheers, and retro 60's/70's style TV theme songs. Very inventive and just plain fun.
