Muto "You Know"
Spanish-born Javier Barrero has performed in a thrash-punk-pop band and crafted soundtracks for pornos and short films. Here, we find him as muto, the alter ego to his other alias, Logical Disorder. On “You Know,” rhythm thumps dully into a crisp snare beat and crinkling electronic accents in the background. Then, currents of candied synths drive in and a new wave tremolo paints across the infectious multi-layered instrumental. The song inhales, pulling back for a bridge and then rebuilds, sighing blissfully with rising vapors of nuanced pop. Lulu McAllister
