Kid606 "I Want Her Wings"
Word has it that Berlin resident and Tigerbeat6 label boss Miguel De Pedro (known to most as Kid606) has yet another full-length album in the works, which will supposedly arrive somewhere toward the end of summer, roughly five or six months after his recently released Ejaculazer Tag EP. But despite the records' close proximity, the music would be hard pressed to be any more different, at least if "I Want Her Wings" is any strong indication. The fuzzy track is almost like a form of playful electronic shoegaze, complete with swirling atmospherics, subdued drum work, and a slow-building arc that never quite peaks. It won't be on Kid606's new album, actually, but nonetheless marks a new direction from the often abrasive, glitch-obsessed veteran artist.
