Debut album from Oakland, California's post punk band The World, double sax, bongos, guitars and drums.

The World are a five people from Oakland, California who write rambunctious dance music with a post punk tool kit and an insightful yet short attention span.

Their songs typically clock in around two minutes long and are a wild head-rush of Amber Sermeno's funk-minded bass lines and shuddering dubbed-out guitar courtesy of Andy Jordan.

Amber also sings alongside Elyse Schrock, who anchors their propulsive songs with some supremely robust drumming.

The steady beat is bolstered further by Alexa Pantalone's expansive bongo rhythms and flurrying saxophone melodies.

Stanley Martinez is the final member of the band, doubling the sax quota and contributing to the complex interplay of instruments that make The World's music so immediate, compelling and groove conscious.
