If you were going on a desert island and could take only one album by Gang Gang Dance, God’s Money would be the less obvious choice. After all, Saint Dymphna was their breakthrough (moreover, think of House Jam and Princes) while Eye Contact confirmed their status as musicians for whom being exceptional and catchy comes pretty easy. What is God’s Money then? It’s a labyrinth of a rainforest woven by endless imagination (Egowar). It’s a cavern deep down below the eternal ice of Antarctica full of shimmering crystals (Untitled (Piano)). It’s a secret chamber waiting to be discovered (God’s Money V). It’s the Kraken surfacing slowly to crush your boat (Before My Voice Fails). Finally, it’s the album I would take on a desert island with me.
