Cassingles review on further dot

The first review of Orca, Attack’s! new (cas)single, You Won’t Remember This, is out and it’s lovely.

“‘You Won’t Remember This’ sounds like it should belong on a Dirty Projectors or Fleet Foxes album, all languid acoustic guitars, yearning vocals from Rodriguez and haunting, elegiac harmonies from Kelly. Around the halfway mark the track suddenly pivots into a cloud of exultant wordless vocals, a jubilant beat and sounds that seem to soar gracefully skyward. On the flip, the instrumental ‘World Map’ is all low-slung bass, wonky melodies and unfathomable rhythms. Eclecticism rules.”

Many thanks to Mat! You Won’t Remember This is available now for presale, out on April 1. Read the full review over on furtherdot.com.

New research article: “This machine will not communicate”: The Decentralization of Authority in Radiohead’s Music and Digital MediA

It’s not exactly an Orca, Attack! production, but it kind of is. David Rodriguez and I just published “’This machine will not communicate’: The Decentralization of Authority in Radiohead’s Music and Digital Media” in the new media studies journal Convergence. It’s our first time publishing an academic work together, and it applies our expertise in music, literature, and information science to an analysis of Radiohead’s work. Currently the article is available freely on the Convergence website.
