Eliphino "I Just Can't"
Up-and-coming tunesmith Eliphino (a.k.a. "What do you get when you cross an elephant with a rhino?") is dropping the inaugural release for the brand-new magazine-cum-label somethinksounds on November 29, and here, we've got the premiere of the closing track on the four-song Undivided Whole EP. The production utilizes just a few standard elements (a couple thinly sliced synth melodies, a floating bass synth, some distant vocal clips, and a simple beat palette), the minimalism of which helps bolster the song's alien vibe. At its core, Eliphino's "I Just Can't" is darkly soulful, dismally buoyant, and woozily feverish; a whole set of contradictions that add to the tense mood.
