If the week’s deluge is leaving you clamoring for solid footing and fiending for the calmness of the eye of the storm, L.A.’s Sasha Spielberg’s (…yes that Spielberg) got your order in spades. Collaborating once again with Chilean-American composer and musician Nico Jaar, Spielberg’s latest project is Buzzy Lee, a downtempo, soul-infused dreampop venture painting over your mood with perky, ethereal vocals and soft, rose-tinted synth tones to hug your weary soul and expunge it of the dread and toxicity the week can bring. “Coolhand” is the lead single from the upcoming Facepaint EP due out next month, and if you really are drowning in the deluge of obligation, listen with headphones. The rest of the world will stop and you’ll run into all that breathing room you’ve been searching for.
“Coolhand” appears on the Facepaint EP, out April 27th via Future Classic.
