Adderall Canyonly & Oxykitten, “I'll Crush Your Tiny Brain”

Post Author:

The Cutting Room, the new release on Field Hymns from the duo of Adderall Canyonly and Oxykitten, is meant to be “underscores”, by which they mean “the opposite of overtures”, i.e. music that is supposed to be soft music to go under film scenes and set the mood. The coinage is a neat one; a lot of the minimal synth stuff coming out right now could be described this way. But I don't know if they achieved their goal – “I'll Crush Your Tiny Brain” is dynamic enough to stand on its own. The track is a nice little head-bopper, starting out with bassy grunts and moving through a dualist melody of two warring keyboard factions.

Field Hymns released this guy as a limited edition cassette.The art, above, is really nice, like all Field Hymns cassettes, although I wish it really came in a knitted package! You can pick it up here.
