Behold ...a Computer Perfection/Dan Demaggio exploration, titled "Boby Tarlow" - a music video for a single from the Detroit-based prog-prodding space-pop-cadets' 2011 EP. A "technicolor origami..." splattering, re-splattering and un-splattering the mind as we musically muse upon the metaphysical possibilities and ludicrous lunacies precipitated by the ethereal/rumored existence of some mad, mythologized being, some synthesizer-sprite...
...or whatever... more info from Computer Perfection's site.
The fact of the matter is, this is an ideal jam for spring, cheerily bombastic, just-the-right-amount-of-blippity sweetness and ever-buoyant!
Meanwhile, Detroit-psyche-twanging quartet Duende have been bit by the archivalist bug, with its lead singer / guitarist Jeff Howitt having recently excavated an old novel of his from before he could legally drink...and, now, with the band putting up free downloadable concerts, zip-mixes of MP3s from shows'-gone-by.
This week, an honor of the unfortunate closing of New York's "musical mainstay" of the East Village, the Lakeside Lounge, they're streaming a show they performed their back in early 2009, between studio sessions with Matt Verta Ray for what would become their Remnant of a Remnant LP.
