Song of the Day 5/15/08: Odd Nosdam - Forever Heavy (Shoegangster/JB remix)
Sometimes the artist describes their own music better than we ever could, and in these moments it's probably best for us to just gracefully step aside. In this case, Odd Nosdam pinned down his "Forever Heavy" remix in one brilliant word: "shoegangster." It's what it sounds like: downtempo and ghostly, but not without some grimy dark claps and unmistakable (though molasses slow) snare breaks. I'm saving that word for my lexicon. Meanwhile, if you hear anyone cop the style, you can point to this track for coining the term.
