Brilliant Pop from Buildings and Food

It might be hard for Jen K. Wilson to to escape those Stereolab comparisons with her Buildings and Food project. But, if you put that all aside, neglect your cool points and immerse yourself below, you will be rewarded. This tune has this plodding electronic from the get-go, shifting and moving before Wilson’s voice comes in over another layer of electronics. Personally, I like the delivery, almost as if the words were dropped into thin air emphatically. It’s all highlighted, too, by some exceptional cymbal work that builds in some extra artistry. People always reference tunes that entrance them, and this is precisely what I envision; look for Quick Beat Save on November 2nd via Number F Records.
