Fancy Mike "Mary B. James"
Fancy Mike, who was the first artist to sign to Canadian imprint King Deluxe back in 2010, dropped his latest LP, Mary B. James, just this week, and has shared the title track off that album to mark the occasion. Although Fancy Mike describes the music as "Midwest minimal," "Mary B. James" radiates tropical heat from elements that don't quite bring to mind corn fields—like, say, the steel drums and clattering percussion which dance alongside buttery synth swells and subdued bass tones. You can hear more of the stripped-down and summery vibes from Fancy Mike's Mary B. James record, after the jump.
