EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Eightcubed - Promise Me
Yeah, he's a funny looking fella isn't he, this guy Eightcubed? Based in Toronto, Rob Esposito's "Promise Me" fizzes with the same spazzed-out mutations as those engineered by Crystal Castles and does, as the picture suggests, sound like musical accompaniment to a situation involving bare chests, jewellery, graffiti and rubble. Do you like rubble? Esposito eats it. The sound of the most recent past and east London circa '07, for all "Promise Me"'s acerbic bluster it ends up oddly nostalgic, the latest victory for retro-futurism.
