RIVKA say hello softly

Post Author:

RIVKA is a Pittsburgh-based electronic duo who siphon off the smoother tactics from a few of the blogosphere's favorite trending textures: their self-titled album is simultaneously chill as fuck and self-consciously aware of down-pitching choice interludes and smacking some tracks with that MPC hi-hat and saw-tooth synth (see lead-off “Kid Animal”). Much like über mellowed Salem acolytes who traded in their sizzurp for extra reverb and idle pleasantries, RIVKA are here to calm you down, or make you madder if you'd rather be listening to Archers of Loaf.
