Dan Bodan : Aaron

Dan Bodan is a young Canadian living in Berlin with links to the contemporary UK electronic pop scene and bands like Hot Chip, who late last year self-released his little-heard second album Nudity + Atrocity; one of the tracks from that record, “DP“, has been picked up by DFA Records, but it is the B-side of the newly-released single that seems to be causing the bigger buzz. “Aaron” is a queasy blend of suffocated soul and experimental electronica that falls somewhere between Arthur Russell and Roxy Music. It’s the soundtrack to a post-rave comedown, the blurry Sunday morning after the fun/ regret (delete as applicable) -filled night before, and although Bodan’s fallen-choirboy croon is that of someone who has had their heart broken, the lyrics suggest he probably relished the whole experience.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
