03 Dec Chet Faker and Marcus Marr Release “Birthday Card”
(from my selection on Earmilk)
As most have begun to expect, Chet Faker is exercising his right to be strange and experimental. You’ll notice how his progression has gone from less risky to extremely risky, but still fantastic. This one is filled with strings, pianos, drums, and pretty much any other noise you can think of, along with some backing vocals from Marcus Marr. “Birthday Card” is not only great to relax to, but it’s also one of those songs where you sit back and think critically about just what is going on. Synths crash, drums hit, pianos stir, the track is packed with our favorite jazz riffing styles, and this is a duo I hope to see more of.
