Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
Luke Carrell (Simian Gibbons)
“A fine young fellow with a fine taste in music (and women)“
Emerging from the depths of their studio, VOCODER trade some of their Hi-NRG italo sheen for a more minimalist feel in this “live” performance. Onstage quirks, solid hooks, and bright flourishes from a youthful Juno-60 make this required repeat listening. May also contain your daily dose of delayed vocals and finely groomed mustaches.
How I Quit Crack
Austin, TX. 2011
More fearfully and wonderfully made detox drones from the lady in neon herself. Vox, feedback loops, and drones create a thousand subtle variations that are easy to miss in the push. Get swept up in it all and let the sub frequencies tear at your bedroom wall.
Dizzy K. Falola
Tommyboy and the gang over at ARAWA.FM are a building a giant brain to hold pop culture memories you wish you had: spanning from to disco funk and the visually bizarre, to artful electronic compositions and unjustly forgotten pop. Now, they come bearing salacious pre afro boogie from a pre “born again” Dizzy K.
If you’ve ever poured your heart out to an inanimate object, pet, deity, or person who didn’t care, this song is for you. A serious set of pipes, a bad broadcast TV studio set, strategic use of reverb, and a unique and very Baltic take on the psychedelia of the preceding decade make for a very touching portrayal of angst as can only be told in black and white.
