Hailing from Dublin, Omid Ghaedi (or simply Omid) has delivered a pair of new tracks via First Second, a fellow Irish outfit intent on highlighting the country's up-and-coming underground talent through its digitial releases. From the sound of "Pipes," Omid certainly has the chops to rise out of the local scene, with the lead track of his digi-single balancing a machinist shuffle with detuned bell chords, bubbling electronics, and tasteful touches of R&B vocals. Omid's new offering—which also comes with a remix from fellow Irishman Nocturn—can be nabbed as a "name-your-price" download on Bandcamp.
