Laurel Halo, Gavin Russom, and Brenmar Share Free EP Inspired by Moog and Brian Eno
- Words: Leo Maymind
Recently, three New York artists were given a handful of Moog gear and one of Brian Eno's famed "Oblique Strategy" cards with the task of creating a brand-new production. Now, Hyperdub affiliate Laurel Halo (pictured above), DFA synth-wizard Gavin Russom, and Brooklyn party-starter Brenmar have offered their finished work as a free download. The three-track EP was commissioned by Self-Titled, and has a stylistic breadth while maintaining the uniformly amazing sonics that Moog's products are known for. Russom's "In Our Streets" has a driving, low-end growl that wouldn't be out of place on a long-lost krautrock compilation; Laurel Halo, the recent focus of Resident Advisor's Machine Love studio feature, turns in a splashy, ambient-inclined piece that sees her showing off her knack for sound design; and Brenmar goes straight to the dancefloor with his appropriately titled "Moog Beat" track. The whole EP can be streamed and downloaded below.
