The 'books you've read lately' is my fav thread on NC, and I believe we used to have one for music, but we gotta start this shit up again. Let's share our music discoveries / experiences of all the good tunes new and old. And a little descrip is most welcome!
Zoo Kid - Out Getting Ribs / Has This Hit
Maybe it's my hangover (wait, I don't get hangovers*) but I was listening to this, by Zoo Kid, last night and it seemed super good, but now all the reverb is hitting me in the soul. This 18 year old's (he was younger when this came out) sound is like nothing I've really heard, and dayum son, I can't wait to hear more. He's crowned himself King Krule now, which seems a little premature so I'll have to listen to that EP more. But these two cuts are amazing me for the time being.
The kid calls it bluewave (thanks, WFLM) and the reverb laden b side track hits me even harder than the A Side. His singing is post-punk meets Kele Okereke in Bloc Party days. Existential and deep bass voice beyond the blokes years.
* I don't get hangnails either... ouch, what's that down on my big toe?**
** these are reeeaally bad inside jokes. Disregard!
Throw your two cents in.
