fog lake – “side effects”

aaron powell’s work as fog lake has been perennially sparse yet affecting, and occasionally downright haunting.  ambient collages of static and drones merged with bedroom pop sketches on 2014’s masterful virgo indigo, and powell duplicated that feat on last year’s follow-up, victoria park.

powell’s pop chops have developed into a formidable tool over the past three years; on “side effects,” the second single from his forthcoming album, dragonchaser, powell effortlessly culls an unforgettable melody from a skeletal structure, weaving in and out of the track’s hypnotic, ticking pulse with a reedy falsetto in tow.

dragonchaser is out february 10th via fog lake’s longtime home, orchid tapes.  press play on “side effects” below.
