Featureless Ghost: "Take It Out"

Paranoid Altantan mutant pop duo Featureless Ghost have been steadily bulking up their credentials since they dropped their first digital single a couple months ago. Later, they released a video for one of the songs, "Scanproof," which premiered on Altered Zones and Pitchfork TV. Next, a couple even weirder Youtube clips popped up on their official website, "Hilite" and "Brain Dive," continuing to focus on faded, retro-futuristic representations of human life while holding it down on a more ambient musical level.

Featureless Ghost's new single "Take It Out" takes a big turn from the most recent videos, a dark and propulsive synthesizer jam channeling Jay Ski's classic "C'mon N' Ride It (The Train)," taking the song's hyper-familiar rhythm and embellishing with loads of extra drum sounds, synthetic whizzes and multilingual monotones with a sing-song chorus. Their full length will be done in a matter of weeks and, while they have not found a label to call home, they are looking to release the it later year on vinyl. The two are working on a more "housed-out" live set and will be traveling up to the East Coast in late May, so check in soon for potential tour dates. --Ian Paul Roger Nelson, Friendship Bracelet
