SOMETHING TO HOOT ABOUT: 12


TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS - "TAPES AND MONEY"




This song from Orlando Higginbottom, the superfluous extraordinaire of all things electronic who works under the abridged moniker of TEED, was released earlier in the year before the launch of the debut album "Trouble" in June. TEED has garnered quite a following over the past twelve months by touring the circuit and performing like there is no tomorrow, releasing several tracks of shadowy night time electro-pop and receiving excellent plaudits from Annie Mac to Nick Grimshaw.


Today of all days is a day for listening to "Tapes And Money" as the British summer finally makes its presence felt casting the UK in feel good warmth. This track serves as the perfect accompaniment to such enriching weather. With a backdrop of buzzing switchboard style synthesising this track infiltrates any room with quirky noise landscapes and menacing choral mosaics that shimmer amongst dusky beats and trickling pools of obsidian electronica. This song is expertly crafted from start to finish with an indirectly devious fa├žade, appearing simplistic at first but upon further listening it begins to carve out an intricate fretwork of differentiating musical elements. Flickering back beats and hazy synth pools give "Tapes And Money" an aural geometric depth that is impressively sturdy and showcases the producer's innate ability to splice together computational sounds into something orchestrated and profound; a seamless metallic continuum. Perfect for a summer spent on the beach.


Check out "Tapes And Money" then show TEED some love by following him on Twitter and "liking" the Facebook group or better still buy the amazing "Trouble".
