gosh pith – “medusa”

– featured image courtesy of the artist –

life without gosh pith feels almost unfathomable.  the detroit duo have turned in consistently strong – and usually gorgeous – collages of soul-infused electronic music for the past few years, carving out their own niche of self-described “cosmic trap” before venturing beyond that genre’s rather ambiguous borders.

the joshes smith and freed are currently hashing out their debut full-length after two indelible extended plays; the as-yet untitled effort should see the light of day in 2017, and previous singles “in my car” and “true blue” have offered a faint glimpse of what the album has to offer.

gosh pith broadened that spectrum of possibilities today with “medusa,” a brief, downtempo new cut that leans heavily on subterranean bass thuds and a host of percussive timbres skittering around a steadfast vocal delivery.  after a few listens, the dollar sign in the song’s title feels both quite topical and like a subtle homage.  take a listen to “medusa” below.

listen to two new songs from mister lies

mister liesnick zanca has been making music as mister lies for awhile now, particularly capturing an audience with last year’s mowgli.  a follow-up record is due out later this year via orchid tapes, but zanca has released two new tracks to tide over fans and entice newcomers.  “flood you” b/w “medusa” is a frenetic nine minutes of impatient vocal samples and positively jittery electronics.  you can stream the pair of songs below and download them at a pay-what-you-want rate.

*update: mister lies’ new album is called shadow and will be out in october via orchid tapes.
