LAY BAC – “Gone B/C”
Since 2010, the Austin, TX-based duo LAY BAC have been making their way through the underground blog community with a slew of excellent singles and an out-of-nowhere French House-inspired EP, which aimed for a crispier, hi-fi sound in terms of overall production quality. Their debut album SHRILLER officially dropped just a few weeks ago—a wondrous 8-track journey that breaks away from everything hi-fi and goes straight back into their signature, lo-fi glam-pop aesthetic (or should I say ‘sex pop’ ?).
“Stay Out Tonight” and “KASUMI (孤独)” are some of the well known classics that they’ve completely re-visioned and remastered, but it’s the last track on the album “Gone B/C” that has really struck a chord with me over the past few weeks. It starts things off with a low-key, barebone drum kick and slowly morphs into a 4:00 AM disco-dream, with reverberating vocals that will swallow you whole. This is the kind of music that will leave you stoned out of your mind without smoking anything at all. It’s quite brilliant.
