Doldrums mastermind Airick Woodhead might be best known as a helping hand on fellow Montreal electronic artist Grimes‘ “Color of Moonlight” but we sense that’s about to change: his Lesser Evil is one of our most anticipated records of 2013 thanks to the compellingly glitchy singles he’s been teasing over the past few months. First he dropped the wildly maximalist, bizzarely irresistible “She is the Wave,” one of my favorite jams of 2012, and now he’s shared “Anomaly,” a sweeping, interdimensional movie soundtrack of a song, assembled like a Frankenstein’s monster of disparate parts into something endlessly fascinating and demandingly relistenable. Check it out – Lesser Evil is out February 26.
