Stream J*Davey's New 'POMP' EP in Full
30 minutes, six tracks, two interludes. That’s the math behind J*Davey‘s resurgent POMP EP, their second EP in just as many years. And while technically, there’s barely been any time between releases, this collection of dark disco, electric and avant soul, is one to be reckoned with. We got our first taste of the record with the cosmic boogie of “Strong Anticipation” last month (which was plenty of an appetizer) but today we’re getting the full script via NPR’s First Listen. Standouts include the buoyant, 8-bit touched “LIBIDO,” the hazy, four-to-the-floor funk of “High On Life” and the album’s very N.E.R.D meets Iggy Pop closer “For Love.” Though it’s still not the full-length we’ve all been waiting, wishing and dreaming of, POMP is about as dynamic a 6-track set as you can imagine and is certainly worth the 30 minutes and change of your devoted attention. The record will presumably be out next, but you can catch an early glimpse at the new batch from J*Davey by hitting the player below. We’ll be sure to have all of the links as soon as they’re up, so just hold tight.
