Vincent Van Go Go

It's just weird when Danish people spout trite lines like "until the break of dawn" and "make the ladies scream" over gratuitous scratches of vinyl. Yet these are the sounds that kick off Vincent Van Go Go's debut, Do U Know? If you're thinking the quintet is doing its version of hip-hop (particularly badly on "All the Fine Women," with a painful un-urban rap), you would be right. But Go Go is also trying its hand at reggae with "La La Li" and paying tribute to Stevie Wonder with "Girls." The group's appreciation for soulful sounds from around the globe is apparent. The need to weakly reproduce those sounds isn't. — Lily Moayeri
