Artist: Blank Blue Track: "In the Swim" Album: Western Water Music Vol. II Listen
Full disclosure: I clicked on the homepage of this group because I thought the female half of this California duo was co-love of my life Meg White. She is not. She is Niki Randa. She is awesome. So is her partner, Elvin Astrada. Together they made eclectic, wandering electronic music that sounds as if a pair of trained lounge crooners were tapped to perform live vocals over the scrappy sounds of DJ Shadow.
This track, as well as the amazing "Ignite," feels a bit like Panda Bear's Person Pitch, giving the impression that the two will skate so many intertwining circles over the same track that a patch of cool, delicate ice will shatter into a million shards and fall gracefully into the deep.
