(8/23/14) Monty's Catch of the Day - Small Black
Posted 2/23/2014 8:25:00 AM

This past year, I was able to meet Small Black, and I have to say that they are an extremely cool bunch of fellas. We were able to joke around about certain subjects, including how much they dislike the term "chill-wave", which was a term used to describe their sound when they (and other like Neon Indian, Washed Out, Toro y Moi, etc.) came onto the scene in 2009. Since then their sound has changed, and become a little more organic as opposed to entirely all electronic. Last year they released a brand new album called Limits of Desire, which really showed this change in their music. This meant leaving the whole "chill-wave" vibe behind. On April 1st of this year, SB will be releasing a follow up EP to last year's Limits of Desire, and they are calling it Real People. Today's catch is the first single from the record entitled, "Lines of Latitude" and features their friend Frankie Rose. I absolutely love this song, and it's 80's New Wave sound. The Brooklyn-based band will be here for this year's SXSW, and I highly recommend checking them out. You can listen to "Lines of Latitude (ft. Frankie Rose)" in its entirety in the Soundcloud player below. Good things!
