[song] CGI dog – Kitchen

CGI dog

CGI dog is the new project of Los Angeles-based artist Chris Cubbi (you might know him as a 1/2 of production duo Best Picture, whose songs were praised on this blog during the last months).

Today he premieres his first tune under the new moniker, a hypnotizing “Kitchen”, which serves as a first taste of Chris’s upcoming debut album.

It’s a two part song that starts off as a booming, playful call for attention before evolving into a breakbeat driven and vaporwave-inspired guitar stomper. As a bonus, it also features Trevor Crown, who is playing guitar this time.

Listen below.

[song] Best Picture – Radio Sick (feat. Deem Spencer)


Back in October last year Best Picture released “LA Noir”, an impressive collaboration with Trevor Crown that ended to be one of our favorite songs during that time.

Last Friday, the production duo have returned with two new tunes, one of which, “Radio Sick”, features Queens, NY-based rapper/singer Deem Spencer. It’s an addictive track with beautiful production and a hazy vibe that’s very easy to relax to.

Stream the song below, which was released along with the following note from the band, and don’t forget to check out the second single “Kite”, featuring Mag, here.

«Our collaboration with Queens artist Deem Spencer “Radio Sick” is, well, a mood. Calling it ‘chill’ wouldn’t be wrong either, but it’s a lot more than that. It’s buoyant but wary; it’s got a calm focus, but strives above hypnotized detachment; it’s the audio equivalent of the point where you find a groove within your preoccupied stream of consciousness.

These moods are distilled and defined by Deem, who shows off his uncanny gift to articulate the least articulable states of mind in his verses here. We’ve been wanting to put something out with Deem for a while and it was awesome to hear this one back». – Best Picture

Best Picture have just dropped a new song, recorded with their friend and vocalist Trevor Crown.

“LA Noir” is electric and atmospheric slice of indie pop, offering an evolved sound and written as an homage to old school West Coast noir films of the 40s and 50s. Stream it below.
