You won’t hear another song like “Bugs Don’t Buzz” today, not even this week. The Grimes producer Majical Cloudz gives a unique blend of sincere lyricism, piano and electronic noisiness, and when coupled with “Childhood’s End,” it’s hard to not start getting excited about Impersonator, which, as Stereogum so elegantly puts it, is “an album best experienced as an album.” Love albums like that.
Majical Cloudz is on tour with the always awesome Youth Lagoon, so check those dates. Cop the album on May 21. Read Devon Welsh’s personal letter about the song on the band’s tumblr.
