Cock and Swan "Stash"
We'll excuse the horrible band name if you will. Cool? Okay. Moving forward, the Pacific Northwest duo of Johnny and Ola translate their penchant for analog synths, ethereal vocal sounds, and polyrhythmic drum patterns into something that sounds like the lovechild of Stereolab and a good part of the Thrill Jockey roster. The breakneck drum pattern of Tortoise's "Jetty," the warm swelling tones of vintage Mouse on Mars, and the pared-down aesthetic of The Sea and Cake meet with a lilting coo reminiscent of Lætitia Sadier to form Cock and Swan's "Stash." It's a tasteful combination, to say the least, and certainly excites our interest in what the other songs on the duo's Unrecognize LP hold. You can stream and download the whole thing here.
