Shigeto "Relentless Drag"
It's been a long time coming, but the debut full-length record from Brooklyn-via-Ann Arbor beatsmith Shigeto will finally drop on November 9 via Ghostly. We've got the first leak to trickle from that 10-track body of work here, called "Relentless Drag." The song is only the third selection on producer Zach Saginaw's Full Circle album, and already things are quite moody. Plinking synth bits à la Oval's latest sound palette, lumbering beat work, and yes, dragging melodies all darkly shade in the nod-worthy composition. It would be a stretch to say this is a cheerless moment in Shigeto's forthcoming LP, but if it's any indication of the path that Full Circle follows, things might get a bit gloomy before he makes his way back to the light.
