Their 2011 album Channel Pressure was all queasy synthpop, like a bad-dream memory of ’80s PBS science-film soundtracks, but Ford & Lopatin go in a couple of different directions on a new collaborative single. One track, “Snakes,” features Light Asylum wailer and frequent !!! collaborator Shannon Funchess, and it’s essentially a Eurodisco banger, but stripped back just enough to make it sound weird and wrong. The other, “Flying Dream,” has vocals from dream-rock singer-songwriter Tamaryn, and it goes into a blissed-out float-pop zone. Both songs are excellent, and I’d take either one over anything on Channel Pressure. Stream them both below.
“Snakes” b/w “Flying Dream” is out on limited-edition 12″ single 11/22 on Mexican Summer.
