Oh yeah baby. Czecho are doing a ten date tour in the summer to support a new EP they'll be releasing and I cannot wait. Hoping we get a single soon or something!
https://youtu.be/DLXn2Ft03BY Plastic Picnic release another jangly single, but this one dials up the emotional angst and psych/synth influence. The middle eight is particularly strong, a breakdown that builds upon itself (first with vocal, percussion and ambient synth, before bringing back the guitars) until exploding right back into the chorus.

Tofubeats kicks off his 2019 with an unexpected cover of Takeuchi Mariya's viral 80's sensation "Plastic Love". The track rose to fame on YouTube and practically gave birth to the "Future Funk" genre.

released 2018, 735654 records dk.
