Video: Dri - " Two Are One"

In internet years, "Two Are One" is a pretty old song, released way back in 2007 by Adrianne Verhoeven—a former member of the now defunct Anniversary. Verhoeven, who records as Dri, seems to have been remarkably ahead of her time, sounding at times almost identical to artists-of-the-moment like Victoria Legrand of Beach House here, and, on various other tracks off her album Smoke Rings, like the washed out and sample-laden sound of "chillwave." The masterful video for "Two Are One" was directed by Neil Krug, a photographer of all things vintage, pulpy, and awesome.

I just got an email from Dri, who has a new project called Extra Classic. The band will be playing Manimal Vinyl's showcase at SXSW with another Everybody Taste favorite, Jenny O. More details about the show here. You can sample the group's first single, the uptempo dub and reggae-fueled "Congo Rebel," which will be released as a 45 shortly.
