PREMIERE: Mighty Challenger - Take It
With his new Mighty Challenger project, Tom Glubizzi (co-founder of Psychic Ills and co-leader of the massive NYC dance outfit Hidden Fees) keeps it in-house and creates warm, blissful music with an otherworldly aura. Reference points? Well, there's shades of Caribou and Arthur Russell, but the mixture of tangling, near-African guitar figures, bleeding electric piano and freewheeling juggernaut rhythms on "Take It" feel unique enough to create a world I want to lounge in for awhile. It's half of a new, self-released 7-inch, and you should buy it here.
