On the Horizon: Miaow. Mallow.

I've never been one to go all in on photos of cats in hats, nor boxes, nor Hallowe'en garb – they're not really of any personal amusement nor appeal. This from Boston glitch-pop producer Ian Barnett – aka Mallow – however, is a no-brainer. In fact it's so darn effectual that how it hasn't already been snaffled up by FlyLo for inclusion on his Brainfeeder label is pretty darn baffling. Mewing into existence with some reedy clarinet redolent of those ever favoured by Sergei Prokofiev, it soon ignites with starry flurries of bitty joy and whooshes of shooting star-like string synthetics. Ramped us right up for Bestival late last week, and it's continuing to keep us going long beyond.
