EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Beaten Awake - Thunder$troke + Coming Home
Some people have a "my first Casio" story about some cheap keyboard with sounds that were thin and strange and maybe not so cool when you were eight but seem interesting and weird and useful now that you're older. I have one. Beaten Awake's music sounds like rediscovering your first Casio–playfully twee, elementary synths dropped into slouchy guitar pop–or like eating a ton of Snickers bars and listening to Yo La Tengo. Sounds absolutely nothing like that photo, though.
