Canada’s 8-bit, electro-kraut guru, Dylan Khotin-Foote, has returned as Kumon Plaza with this remix of Coma Cinema’s “Her Sinking Sun.” It’s available for download at his bandcamp. Grab the original here.
I had a terrible dream last night that I missed a Gobble Gobble show, and when I called Cecil to ask him why he didn’t tell me they were coming to town, he said that he had, but that I claimed that I “had too much school work.” I woke up kind of bummed at the thought of missing that show and at the fact that I have a physics project to do, but then I checked my email and found a message from Cecil, reading:
"I’ve capitulated to the gods of thanksgiving. In their honor and yrs."
Following the message was this brilliant cover of The-Dream’s “Nikki,” bursting with seemingly unworldly sounds and energy, as usual. So, if you also succumbed to the endless indulgences of Thanksgiving, this one can surely pull you back to consciousness.
Atlanta’s very own Dog Bite, the one-man synth/sampling project of Phil Jones, recently released his debut single, “Machino Machino,” on Young Turks. It’s fairly reminiscent of his earlier work, particularly in the line of my personal favorite, “Indian Houses,” which I posted back in April.
Phil had been playing some shows with Washed Out, and opened for Gobble Gobble in late August, so I was hoping that he was making his way back into the business. And it’s always great to see a local artist getting some much deserved attention, so this one is a special treat for me. Grab the new single and “Indian Houses” below, and you can also download his Owls and Eyes EP here.
