Did You Hear? Breaking Me Down

New music! Sometimes old music. Music that we love!

I found this great synthpop from a group called Lo, and I enjoyed the hell out of the whole album, starting with “Breaking Me Down.” It reminds me of St. Vincent, Zero 7, and what Lady Gaga could do if she turned it down a notch or twenty. It’s also mixed to perfection, thanks to Mr. Darrell Thorp (and others), fresh off a Grammy win for his work on the Beck album. He’s a master!

Did You Hear? Regret

New music! Sometimes old music. Music that we love!

I am loving this song. I am loving the layered electric fuzz of the rapid-fire guitar, the upward-loping bass line on the chorus, and the unexpected contrasts that jump out everywhere. Fuck yeah this song. Brook Reeder is normally your Did You Hear? columnist and he’s a lot more articulate about these things than I am. But fuck yeah this song.
