EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Bug Lung Baby - Trilobite Trash EP
Bug Lung Baby is Jonathan Visger--lead singer and songwriter of Michigan indie group Mason Proper--and Trilobite Trash is the second EP of solo compositions he's put out this year, available for free exclusively here on RCRD LBL. While MP's slept on September disc Olly Oxen Free (Dovecote) saw the band messing with tighter, beat-heavy passages, Trilobite dives headfirst into that pool, a fifteen-minute opus of modern laptop music that has its fingers submerged in pop, hip-hop, funk, dubstep and ambient sounds. It's a pretty remarkable and focused record for a side project, loaded with inventive melodies (sunny opener "This Life") and rhythmic heft (the midnight dub funk of closer "Paper Crane") and, honestly, sounds incredibly human for being written, recorded, produced, arranged, mixed, and mastered entirely by one dude (Visger). Get into it below, and if you like what you hear, go pick up Jon's first 2008 EP North South Part I at Secret Tunnel Group and Mason Proper's Olly Oxen Free over at Insound.
