On the rise from the depths of D town, Coyote Clean Up offers up his fuzzed-out dance version of the Nirvana classic “Silver“. Part of a 7″ split via Five Three Dial Tone Records, this is newly sold out (due to a great turnout the night of the release), but fret not – you can still snag the digital version.
Self-described, “Detroit headphone house smushed with some shoegazey stuff like My Bloody Valentine – or something” (via junodownload.com), it’s music that fits inside the many folds of the brain, traversing a maze of moods and memories. Grimy, squishy chillwave with flavors of house – there’s a lot to like.
Though he’s from my own stomping ground, I’m not surprised I haven’t heard of him yet. As Coyote says jokingly,
“There isn’t a “Detroit Weekly Techno Times” newspaper… It’s kind of like the scene here is our own secret club. Word of mouth, low-key parties, basements, bedrooms. Then on the flip side, there is plenty of worldwide media that focuses on Detroit, and that’s cool by me. The world is our audience, the city is our home – can’t complain about that.”
You have no idea how true that is. I’m happy I hit the right party, and I’ll be keeping my eye on him from here on out.
