Oscar Huang/Rhythm Phazer: split 7″

The second split 7″ on Vanity Press features Oscar Huang on the A-side, with a simple but joyful, uplifting track, sprinkling some dazzling synth lines over classic garage-house piano chords, and then adding some bird sounds and other textures near the end. The beat really pushes everything forward and everything else falls into place after that, and it just all ends up sounding really positive and refreshing. The Rhythm Phazer side is pretty different, on more of an ’80s new wave/post-punk/electro-funk tip. Still super danceable, and there’s a hi-hat shuffling away in back of the alternating kicks and snares, but the focus is more on the interlocking synth melodies and swooping bassline. Both artists seem like ones to watch.
