Some of you are probably already familiar with Josh Raskin and his project Kids and Explosions.
I, on the other hand, was not.. and his new album ‘Shit Computer’ has been laying on my desk for about 2 weeks now.
I was intrigued by the cover, both front and back. I finally opened the sucker yesterday… I had been cheating myself for weeks….. 😦
This album is so f*cking sweet!!!
These songs are not ‘mash-ups’, they’re better. Raskin’s brain works in a way that I, for one, cannot fathom.
This is art…
