It seems like ages ago that Murray first blew my mind by posting up a track by Beat Connection out of Seattle. It was a few months back, right in the midst of New Wave fever sweeping over the world, and the track, 'Same Damn Time' gave me one of those feelings where things just seem so simple. It's kind of like watching Donnie Darko.
Anyway, I was really excited to get back in touch with the guys again to hear that they have released a full EP for free. The aptly named 'Surf Noir' EP is a collection of beats, vocoder lyrics and pan synths that can easily be the soundtrack to any mood that you're feeling. The comparisons with heavy weights of the genre such as Toro Y Moi and Washed out will flow in as they should, the EP soars about 2 foot above sea level and caress your ear drums like a gentle wave at the beach.
Wow. Perhaps the moral to this tale is that it's very hard to describe, but amazingly easy to listen to.
This link previews tracks and allows you to go to website to download it for free. i highly recommend you do this.
