Today’s Song of the Day is from Aura headliners Papadosio, who have been bringing their high voltage jamtronica dance parties to Aura since its inception. Mike Healy’s precise and dynamic drumming style keeps the pace alongside a haunting keyboard melody leading into this ten minute interpretation of the original. Airy samples and glitched out synthesizers set the stage for Anthony Thogmartin to shred the melody, building the song into a more intense peak each time.
The song is from their 2010 album “Observations” (which can be streamed in its entirety here), but this live version highlights the group’s versatility and improv abilities. It also features Sam Brouse, a new addition to the band in 2011 and an amazing songwriter driving the creation of the band’s new material which is slated to be released later this year. In the meantime, though, check out the rest of this 10.29 show on Archive.
