Mirror Talk "Don't (The-Drum Version)"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
To complement Los Angeles synth-pop outfit Mirror Talk's just-released Infatuation EP, Chicago duo The-Drum (a.k.a. Brandon Boom and Jeremiah Chrome, pictured above) have offered up a sensual rework of the band's "Don't" single. Warping the singer's moans and exhalations into a layered collage that recalls the cartoony pleasure of Aphex Twin's "Windowlicker," Boom and Chrome keep a straight face with their production, building on a seductive R&B rhythm with abundant vocal texture, skittering finger snaps and hi-hats, and honeyed synth flourishes.
