Fledgling Brooklyn label Connect has sent over a number of exclusive downloads lately—namely, three different tracks from co-founder Rioux—and is now offering brand-new single from another artist, fellow NYC resident Headaches (a.k.a. Landon Speers). Titled "Stagest," the markedly crisp tune has no apparent loose ends; from the resonating bassline, to the subtle streams of vocals, to the playful percussive labyrinth, it's clear that Speers pays careful attention to detail. It's all asking to be picked apart and analyzed, but just as swiftly as the distinct layers of sound mesh into a cohesive whole, each component is steadily stripped back until only the crunchy synths are left to finish off Headaches' new song.
