Now that 2008 is settled. Lets move on. One of the many tracks that caught my ear so far this year comes from New Villager. They are a talented duo (Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini) from Brooklyn, NY/California…other than that, that’s all I can tell you. Their label, Two Syllable Records, mentions some randomness about a mythological character transformation, but they sound like an intriguing experimental dance/electronic band to me. Their track “Rich Doors “, enters 2009 with booming drums, a catchy hook and enough space-age sounds to make Pharrell and Chad jealous. I foresee a Hood Internet helmed Clipse mash-up in the future.
Thanks to My Old Kentucky Blog for turning me on to another great band.
