First Listen

Napolian "Olympia"

Somewhere amongst the Hype Williamses, the Laurel Halos, and the D'Eons of the esoteric, lo-fi beat-pop realm is a guy from LA named Ian Evans, making strange, boogie-flavored instrumentals with an ear for spacey atmospheres under the moniker Napolian. From Evans' recently released split-LP with Texan producer Computer Dreams, aptly titled Napolian/Computer Dreams (pictured above), "Olympia" is a two-parter with its first half boasting a soulfully anthemic-yet-understated sound, and the second sort of flying off the deep end into Casio-SK-1 land. Check out the rest of this interesting record here.
