Tycho – “Awake (Com Truise Remix)”

Earlier this year, the downtempo producer Tycho expanded his project into a permanent trio and began touring as a live band. The results paid off, as you can hear from songs like “See” and “Spectre,” but this is still very much electronic music, which means the songs on Awake lend themselves nicely to remixes. Now… More »

Com Truise – “Declination” (Feat. Joel Ford)

It’s been over a year since we’ve heard anything from producer Com Truise, aka Princeton’s Seth Haley, but he’s back with a new song and EP due out in February. For “Declination,” he teamed up with fellow ’80s enthusiast Joel Ford (whose side project Ejecta just released a great debut) and the result is a… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Sick (Com Truise Remix)”

Last month, Scotland’s the Twilight Sad announced the forthcoming release of No One Can Ever Know: The Remixes, on which a host of excellent artists would remix songs from the band’s last album, No One Can Ever Know. We’ve already heard one track from the album — Liars’ reworking of “Nil” — and now, we’ve… More »

All summer, the Adult Swim Singles Program has been giving away free songs every Monday, and the latest selection comes from New Jersey synth auteur Com Truise. It’s a nifty piece of robotic keyboard-funk called “Chemical Legs.” Download it below. More »

Stream Com Truise In Decay (Stereogum Premiere)

In Decay, the new album from New York vintage-synth traveler Com Truise, isn’t exactly an album. Rather, it’s a collection of studio outtakes and rarities — something a studio rat like Truise churns out incessantly. We’ve already heard the album track “Open,” and now we’ve got the whole LP streaming below. More »

Com Truise – “Open”

NJ synthfunk producer and ’80s fetishist Com Truise has been on a roll with his last few releases, to the point that he and his label Ghostly International think it warrants In Decay, a collection of his “unreleased, early recordings” (read: demos and freebies). Com completists will be glad to know that Truise (born Seth… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

Com Truise – “Brokendate” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Will Joines directs this Blade Runner-esque clip for Com Truise’s “Brokendate,” and the combination of Seth Haley’s bleating analong synths and Joines’s dystopian futurescape is a relatively perfect match. The song could probably work in a Tron sex scene, if there were such a thing. Check out Haley’s sunglasses-of-the-future-bedecked visage in action below:… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: May 2011

At eight tracks and just over a half-hour, this month’s mix compiles the most compelling freely released tracks of the past few weeks. It’s bookended by guitars rooted in psychedelic jangle and hardcore, respectively, with largely electronic compositions in between. This month we were impressed by EMA, John Maus, Purity Ring, Laurel Halo, Com Truise,… More »

Com Truise – “Cathode Girls”

Last summer we met electronic artist Com Truise via the soothing hiss and nostalgic, luxuriously funky balm of his free Cyanide Sisters EP. We tagged him an “unsigned guy who will soon be signed,” and the Ghostly label quickly made good on that by adding the NJ native to the likes of Gold Panda, SVIIB,… More »

Neon Indian, Prefuse 73, DOM, Nite Jewel, Miniature Tigers, Com Truise @ Governors Island, NYC 8/14/10

Governors Island is a magical place built for art, installations, bike rides, and marriage proposals. The New York Times has done a profile, followup, and critical discussion piece on the place this summer, but the best way to experience it is take the five-minute ferry from the South Street over to the isle and let… More »

Com Truise – “Sundriped”

Princeton, NJ producer and ’80s nostalgia maker Com Truise produces a fully formed, fully formidable take on what people have resorted to calling chillwave, at a time when people are resolving to avoid any new artists that make anything resembling chillwave. True, we have enough. Though you have to make room for something if it… More »
