Comedown Sunday: All Again

Installation by Robert Montgomery

I'm well aware it's no longer Sunday, but it's Monday, which rhymes with Sunday--and not just a partial rhyme either--so no one better huff. Truth is, I fell asleep before I had a chance to post last night; but the thought was there.

This week's Comedown Sunday tune comes from Hard Mix (real name Noah Daniel Smith), a South Carolina-based producer who's smooth, sample-heavy beats have been earning him accolades among the Pitchfork types and electronica purists alike. Having been on the radar for a few years, I assumed he was a seasoned veteran. Surprise! Turns out he's barely legal, with his 21st birthday passing just last week. Nothing like learning a favorite artist is a year your junior to make you feel seriously under-accomplished. In celebration, he released the song All Again , a hazy little number that retains a fluid languor in spite of rattling percussion and staccato marimbas. Pretty sexy stuff.

If you like what you hear, be sure to download his Defaults LP, which is available for FREE if you 'Like' his label, Dovecote Records' Facebook Page.
