Com Truise "Cathode Girls"
With the release date of his debut LP, Galactic Melt, rapidly approaching, maverick producer Com Truise has leaked album cut "Cathode Girls" to whet our appetites. Maintaining consistency with his previous nostalgia-drenched output, "Cathode Girls" nevertheless reveals that, though Com Truise has a footing in the past, his aim is for the future. The track modulates between two distinct moods: the first, a noodly new-wave synthesizer jam; and the second, a laid-back and blunt-wrapped ode to '80s electro-soul. The song begins as a disorganized mess of limp analog synthesizer stabs but then slowly congeals around a chorused-out bassline cribbed off Peter Hook. Then, switching modes, a gritty Zapp & Roger synth-bass drops in with a Linndrum rhythm that wouldn't sound out of place being bumped from the trunk of a pimped-out '88 LeSabre. Download "Cathode Girls" below and pick up Galactic Melt on July 5. (via FADER)
