What I Heard This Morning: Panther

Last year's 14kt God, crafted from the loving hands of Portland, Oregon duo, Panther (multi-instrumentalist Charlie Salas-Humara and drummer Joe Kelly), wasn't necessarily the best thing I heard last year. Still, standout tracks like the funk-driven "On The Lam" and the organ swirling loveliness of "Glamorous War" made enough of an impression on me that I want to keep track of where they take themselves and their sound.

A new 12" dubbed The Birds will be out March 6th on Altin Village. It's premiere extract, a cute piano ditty entitled, "Like A Bridge," seems a more poppy and less lo-fi effort.

"Like A Bridge"

Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead

Apologies for the quiet September. My time was needed everywhere but here. That said, I'm happy to end the month with some good singles ...
