TV Torso - "No Idea Why"

Everybody Taste favorites TV Torso posted a new jam to Soundcloud over the weekend: the sonically rich genre-melting gem, "No Idea Why." Frontman Matt Oliver—who also records a large chunk of Daytrotter's sessions in his Austin studio Big Orange—transmits his vocals with a generous dose of tremolo while pumping giant analog bass synths into this far out vision of pop music. There's a touch of Britt Daniel's raspy vocal delivery and notes of Oliver's former band with Bill Baird, Sound Team, but in the end, TV Torso is unquestionably its own unique beast: a calculated assault of rhythm, hooks, and dizzyingly nuanced layers of aural goodies. If you haven't yet had a chance to snag TV Torso's two rollicking 7"s or stellar 12" EP Status Quo Vadis, we recommend you pick those up immediately. Seriously, this is one of the best and most intriguing bands around.

Purchase TV Torso music on Bandcamp.
