Pikachunes - Cinnamon Pop Dream
Pikachunes (Miles McDougall) has been featured previously on this blog with several of his minimalist electro-indie-pop offerings. Although the recent "Miles" EP retains remnants of that sound, this single (featuring Zowie) is a lush disco-stunner. What stands out for me is how well his vocals work with these production settings. Despite being known for his unconventional electronica, Miles has plenty of musical repertoire to call on, being a formally-trained jazz musician with skills across percussion, piano, guitars and brass. Electronica was something he became enthusiastic about during an extended convalescence. A superb video from Lauren Beck (dir/prod) and Rick Mereki (dir/editing) completes the offering.
