Despite its double Django rating, this British ensemble has nothing to do with gypsy jazz or spaghetti westerns. Instead, singer/guitarist Vincent Neff’s Django Django is bloop-bleeping art-pop in the grand order of the Beta Band and the first Hot Chip album. (Weird side note: Beta Band’s keyboardist is the brother of Django’s drummer.) The ex-art-school act’s eponymous 2012 debut features creepy, clinking surf songs (“Hail Bop”) that go well with Neff’s sunshiny harmonies, eight-bit electronic workouts (“Zumm Zumm”) and glitchy blue-eyed soul (“Firewater”). Mostly, though, Django Django is defined by fussy arrangements, angular rhythms and Neff’s cool-as-a-cucumber emotionalism. Even when he’s leading the charge through the pounding “WOR,” Neff never breaks a sweat.
