Product Description

"Saint Dymphma", named after the patron saint of outsiders, is the band's follow-up to the acclaimed "God's Money". They've taken an even dancier, inclusive direction that continues to emphasize the ritualistic elements of their music while upping the transcendent aspects. The production is pristine cinematic headphone candy with 70's Eno intricacy and 00's Timbaland immediacy that will hold your attention while Gang Gang Dance continue to push things forward. The Wire comments 'This music breathes; vocals are often cut-up exhalations, crafted into pointillist beats....It all sounds wonderful, sparkling and glistening.'

HASH(0x9d47e798) out of 5 stars i really wanted this new ggd release to deliver... Nov. 22 2008
By Mr. Aaron H. Levine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
and saint dymphna is a decent album. the song lengths are shorter and the compositions are more condensed so you basically get more bang for your buck, though the ggd style shines through in all its new age world breakbeat twitter rock glory. a guest vocalist appears on 'princes', a grime dancehall guy which is ok, but there are some quieter, slower moments on the album, although the classic ggd flourishes have always been the attraction for me. this album provides something new from ggd that is familiar but developed in a good direction. also try 'gods money' and 'revival of the $hittest' if you can find it.

HASH(0x9d56c3e4) out of 5 stars top notch Aug. 25 2009
By J. Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this crept up to potential all-time favorite status. once you get used to SD, get into the older material if you haven't already - so out there... experimental vibes, but less and less pop-like as you go back in time - real auditory art!

Of some CDs I listen in 2008, Saint Dympna by Gang Gang Dance is one of brilliant one. Hope to see more review from them.
HASH(0x9d0cecfc) out of 5 stars Innumerably Replayed Dec 8 2014
By Roman Marta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One my personal favorite albums in my entire collection. From it's diverse yet united sound, unique vocals and poetic lyrics... I can't recommend it enough honestly.
Highlights for me were Bebey+First Communion, Blue Nile+Vacuum, (the way those songs flow into each other, I consider them one song) House Jam and Desert Storm.
