Gang Gang Dance, who we haven’t heard from since 2008’s fabulously abstract Saint Dymphna, are currently readying their fifth LP, Eye Contact, set for release on May 10 stateside, and a whole day earlier across the pond on 4AD. As a rather large appetizer, the psych outfit has seen fit to unleash the hulking “Glass Jar” upon the listening public. An eleven minute opus serving as the upcoming album’s opening track, the song hints at an album brandishing guest stars (Alex from Hot Chip is reported to appear as a guest vocalist), as well as the typically manic and sonic deftness that the band has perfected since their inception.
