Dealer’s Choice – fthrsn / Black Wing / Spazzkid Dealer’s Choice – fthrsn / Black Wing / Spazzkid

poker1Friday night hasn’t been all right for fighting since the last brown joint on the Lower East Side opened its doors to one and all so that the regulars might get swallowed whole in the French cuffs and Egyptian musks and all the wrong people could get so rich they’d never have to worry about dying young. So it goes, they say, sometimes but we don’t feel much like listening to such casual dismissal of neighborhood archetypes and lazy, misdirected shrugs against violence. We’d spit if our mouths weren’t so filled with soot and absinthe. We’d rage if the walls weren’t caving and the water hadn’t turned to wine then blood then birthright and so we’re just gonna go ahead and dig through the trenches a minute to consider the machinists that make Dealer’s Choice. Can you dig it? CAAAAAN YOOOU DIIIIG IT?!

“What Do I Want to Be When I Grow Up” from Middle School Swag

I think a lot of people do not get or miss the point of bedroom recordings. There is a subtle craft, an art in creating something which sounds cheaply recorded but possesses nearly innumerable possibilities for entertainment. Fthrsn is from Michigan and take the sound of Sonny and the Sunsets, Beach House and jj, make it more hazy while revolving around middle school dances. A great soulful cry which preserves the awkward stance of two teenagers dancing slowly. Oh also this comes on casette but you already knew that.

“Black Wing” (demo)

We are always eager as beavers wrestling alms from the long copper shrift to talk about anything from the meth mouth mind and generally undermining radicalized unhappiness that is the creative torrent of Mr. Dan “No Fun. Not Ever.” Barrett. Today we’re talking Black Wing. A stepping stone from the endless remark of Have a Nice Life and a little less herald the horrors of suicidal ideations that became the merciless, resonant blues of Giles Corey. It’s a little like the witch wave that swept under the rugs of so many privileged druggists a couple spits before only calm and kind (in its way) and one more lead foot dancing on the grave. No rapping neither nor no bullshit. There must be more.

“Getting To Know You” from Desire

Well, here it is. A tape by a Los Angeles based bedroom dreamwave artists named Spazzkid. Other than the name, everything about Desire and its whole visual aesthetic speaks puffs of digital clouds and landscapes made by outdated technology. It’s all amazing. The synthesized voices make this track recall Richard D. James strangeness combined with an unnerving sense of calm. You can find Spazzkid on a great tape label called Purr Tapes based in Oregon. Where else are you going to get your chill and vapor music? Duh.
