Starkey- "Dystopia"

New MusicadminComment

Starkey is the latest purveyor of bass and bangers on Civil Music. His latest album is out now, and it's title is Orbits. The label has seen fit to stream the whole thing on YouTube, and "Dystopia" is a true stand-out thanks to its trap-style hi-hats, massive kicks, and heavy synths. If you've been digging on that TNGHT EP at all, I think you'll find this appealing.

YACHT- "Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire)"

YACHT, like many other DFA Records artists, creates a synth-heavy style of dance pop. But what sets YACHT apart from the rest of the pack is their cultish style and lyrical themes revolving around religion and society at large.

Their '09 LP See Mystery Lights had some essential tracks for that year on it--you know, like this one.

"Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire)" is the first single to drop from the duo's forthcoming album, Shangri-La. Though the hook is a little tired due to its willingness to "let the motherfucker burn," the sentiment of everything going to hell in a handbasket is pretty good. The groove and verse lyrics are pretty spectacular, too. Officially looking forward to this.
