Video: City Calm Down-Pavement

I dunno what it is, but City Calm Down are probably the best electronic band going around right now. Really, World’s End Press and Jagwar Ma are the only other groups that comes to mind that have the same electricity, depth and allure as City Calm Down.

Case in point: the new song ‘Pavement’. In it’s nearly five minute run time, the song shifts from poppy RUFUS sound alike, to a sheening Donny Benet-esque 80’s lustmobile. Then it implodes into a high-synth chorus that’s all about self-doubt covered in sparkle, before ending on a grooving, shifting sand soundscape. There’s so much going on here it’s hard to know where to swoon, and where to let things just run you over with how amazing they are.

Overall, I’d say that’s a pretty fucking awesome song.
