mp3 premiere: "lead and alchemy" - so totally
There's something especially cathartic and soothing about unrestrained and reckless noise. Maybe it's because it renders you the ability to turn it up loud and lose yourself completely to its energy but raucous, lively fuzz like that of so totally's "lead and alchemy" are what magical moments are made of. Two label greats, Forged Artifacts and Citrus City are teaming up to release a remastered version of cheap close-up of heaven on Sept. 8 and today we're bringing you this single. The track's beginnings are marked with high energy and a playful rush of noise that soon settles, swooping you into its intoxicating presence with a rapidly slowed down middle, vocals taking center stage as they rise above it all with repetitious instructions before layering it all together for one firework of an ending. The track is one to leave you feeling dizzy, but in a fun, dazzling way, like you've tumbled out of something beautiful and you're feeling completely changed and full of hope.
