Out There Pop from J&L Defer
This tune from J&L Defer popped up yesterday, and I don’t feel like it received its just desserts. For a minute, I completely thought it was going to be this constructionist pop like Octopus Project or Black Moth Super Rainbow, but there’s still a simple structure when you peel back the varying layers. Some of the odd drum samples or fading bleeps might disguise it, but I see you in there you great pop song! Perhaps a bit more vocals would draw in a bit more of an accessible audience, but the fact that it ignores traditional sensibility makes it all the more intriguing…and perfect. Look for the band’s debut, No Map, via Exploding in Sound on September 2nd.
