Oxykitten – The Streets Were Paved With Circuit Boards
Believe it or not, I don’t get to use the word “swagger” too much when writing about music on my blog, which is only one of the reasons I am so happy that I’ve heard this Oxykitten tape on Field Hymns. Because, oh man, does this tape have serious swagger. These sleek, street-smart synth nuggets saunter around like video game villains about to vandalize a parking lot and then proceed to cover everything in a thick haze of spray paint. Honestly, it’s like a synthed-out Madlib doing video game music in 1984 and that just scratches the surface of what Oxykitten is capable of. Big recommendation on this one.
