New: SBTRKT - “New Dorp, New York” (featuring Ezra Koenig)
Ol’ Ezra K is making quite a name for himself as a hired hand. In the last few years, the Vampire Weekend frontman has popped up on albums by Chromeo, Major Lazer, The Very Best and Theophilus London, as well as the Oscar-nominated “The Moon Song” with Karen O, but now here he is popping up on the first single from SBTRKT’s highly-anticipated second album Wonder Where We Land. It’s a definite evolution of the sparse dubstep of SBTRKT’s eponymous debut, a little bit funk in places, a little bit These New Puritans at parts, and a big bit of Debbie Harry’s rapping in “Rapture”. It’s weird, but good weird.
