Conveyor, “Pushups”


If you dig deep enough, you'll let the happiness out.


Dayna Evans | October 4, 2013


Lo-fi pop projects Casiotone For The Painfully Alone and Throw Me The Statue were two of the greatest of the mid-00s to utilize near-perfect pop sensibilities through layers of crunch, crispyness, and subtlety. It's not easy to maintain stick-in-your-head melodies under fierce feedback and muck, and alongside the two poorly-named prior staples, Conveyor is following up with even greater nuance. “Pushups”, the first single since 2012's self-titled, is Dirty Projectors noodly but full of Jeff Mangum melodies, and never loses its joyous stride. If you're able to see through the deliberate grunge, you'll get to a golden nugget of exuberance. It's appropriate, then, that this single (as well as it's B-side “Mammal Food”) will be released on gold vinyl.

Mammal Food/Pushups will release through Gold Robot Records on December 10.
