Master Muscles is a confusing and unsettling thing that has stuck with me longer than was probably welcome…definitely one of the best short films I’ve seen this year.
Bonus points for the Breaking Bad sampling intro, otherwise a great pulsing mass of Space Trap, featuring Flosstradamus, Rustie, TNGHT and a bunch of other folks I don’t know.
Been waiting a long time for this…never has over 2 years felt so long. The new track carries a heavy vibe of The National & Grizzly Bear, while still sounding like an organic Local Natives track. Their sophomore album Hummingbird out January 28th on Infectious and January 29th on Frenchkiss.
Currently in the running for album of the year.
Just to get this out of the way, I don’t think I have much kind to say about Lil B. My first exposure to him was through Clams Casino and when hearing the track he did for Lil B with and without vocals…I vastly preferred the version without his rapping. This song tumbles down the same route; the beat is amazing and while Stunnaman does a good job, the moment Lil B starts, the quality drops. While I didn’t intend for this to just be a slam on Lil B, I guess I’ve never really been called to voice my opinion on him. Instead, focus on the head nodding, glitchy clatter that Star Slinger brings to the table and enjoy.
