Corduroi “Crustacean” [SOTD]

10/05/2011

Corduroi’s breed of childhood-nostalgic electro-pop has the potential to ride the over-played coattails of MGMT but steers clear of the “in the sandbox diggin’ up worms” cheese and instead opts to blend the tape-cassete era synthetic beats with new wave sampling for a “just listen and understand”  21st-century clarity.

Texas native Corduroi, aka Cody Wilson, “took the name Corduroi from his favorite childhood book, Corduroy The Bear as a symbol of that nostalgia.” Isn’t that sweet.

In “Crustacean,” spacey old-time futuristic chimes reminiscent of the “star” level in Mario Kart complement contemporary lounge music and tinny drum beats flawlessly rehashing the best of 80s sounds for today’s ears.
