♫♪  Catamaran - “Krokodil”

This self-titled cassette debut of Vincent Brunetto’s beats/remixes project was recorded during the producer’s move from Buffalo to New York, and seems to have absorbed the tension of frigid Northeastern winters and the uncertainty of transition. Although the tropical gemstone artwork — goofy font and all — might suggest otherwise, Brunetto says the project was created out of isolation, as perhaps most solo/software music is, even when the attitude is nothing but “I Just Wanna Party.” “Krokodil” hints at more than that with subtly dark chord progressions. This thing is out now on L.A.-based MJMJ (twomichaeljordans) Records.
