We haven’t heard really anything from the New York electronic duo Golden Filter in 2013, until right now – Penelope Trappes and Stephen Hindman have released a half-hour long collection of demos called Unselected Works Vol 1 as a holiday gift to their fans. Demos or not, they sound totally fantastic, with Trappes‘ eerie, distant, sometimes-edited vocals providing the perfect foil to Hindman’s minimalist, film-noir synth programming. Apparently, Unselected Works functions as something to tide us over until the duo can release a proper sophomore full length record – like we’ve seen happen with so many artists we love in 2013, it’s being held up by issues beyond the band’s control. In the meantime, check out the demos – you won’t be disappointed.
