Ahead of his latest album, Good Doom aka Anthony Schurbon has graced us with a brand new single, “Total Animal Soup.” The Minneapolis-based artist creates warm, glitchy soundscapes, that draw you in and cover you in comforting sound. His album New Shapes For You, is slated for a March 10 release on the ever-interesting Forged Artifacts label. The cheerful succulents gracing the cover the cover of this tape are a clue to the pleasant and happy tunes inside;
The song adds layer upon layer of chilled-out beats, pulling you into a trance, ensuring you’ll be nodding your head and moving your body. A dark and whispered chorus of “rock and roll, rock and roll,” runs through the song, a cheeky comment lobbed over electronic music, but it is rock and roll. There’s hardly any rules or conventions when it comes to rock and roll anymore and Good Doom is just making good music.
Listen to this song when it is sunny, and you’re driving down the road with your windows down and your best shades on. The upbeat and slightly mysterious instrumentals could just be the soundtrack to one of the best days of your life.
