GoGo Penguin
Ocean In A Drop

As a marquee name in the modern glut of modern jazz revivalists, GoGo Penguin turn their attention to music for film in 'Ocean In A Drop' - an original live score to Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 experimental indie film, Koyaanisqatsi. An enigmatic and powerful coming together of two cult artistic forces.

GoGo Penguin
A Humdrum Star

A Humdrum Star is the second long-player from exponents of Jazz and electronica, GoGo Penguin. This is their second for Blue Note, following on from, A Man Made Object in 2016. The band were critically lauded for their set at SXSW earlier in the year and their 2014 album V2.0 was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. It's fair to say that they come highly recommended, then.

GoGo Penguin
v2.0

'v2.0' is the Mercury Prize nominated album from Manchester jazz collective GoGo Penguin. Blending modern strains of jazz with hints of left-field strains of the genre and jazz-rock instrumentation, the group create hypnotic melodies underpinned with visceral bass-lines and sweeping rhythms. Part of GoGo Penguin's charm is their ability to incorporate sounds from far afield genres, notably video game music, classical/minimalism, glitch, electronica and prog.

Fanfares

Gondwana Records press GoGOpenguin’s nu-jazz debut Fanfares. The Manchester unit combines jazz composition and percussion with elements borrowed from electronica and ambient music. Delicate neoclassical piano is framed by strange arrangements and super tight drumming. At a stretch we could compare them to Portico Quartet, but GoGoPenguin are making something unique.

GoGo Penguin
Man Made Object

GoGo Penguin are part of a small, elite pantheon of British artists signed to the legendary Blue Note label, putting them in the same room as jazz royalty. As Man Made Object shows, they’ve got there by melding traditional jazz approaches with sounds from glitchy electronica: all produced acoustically, of course.
