Song of the Day 8/7/08: Tobacco - Truck Sweat
Maybe this is the next trend in electronic music: more thin snares, more treble, more handclaps and fingersnaps. There's still a sense of bombast here, but - contrary to the electro assault that recently peaked and waned - all the deep sounds in Tobacco's "Truck Sweat" dissipate and descramble in an electromagnetic field, floating off into a high-pitched haze. This isn't dance music, but it isn't downtempo - it's sort of the twitchy, redheaded stepchild of the family that grows up to become an eccentric artist. Hey, anyone know who I have to contact to secure a job soundtracking Tron 2? I'd throw this one on in a heartbeat.
