Best New Tracks: Rostam Batmanglij
Vampire Weekend producer/multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij has just dropped a mind-expanding follow up track to September's "Wood" (http://soundcloud.com/musicrostam/wood), called "Don't Let It Get To You." This multi-layered piece of electronica hurls us in a whole bunch of dreamy directions, some of which are occupied by Animal Collective-slurs and primitive drum beats, others of which appear to take influence from more whimsical folk tradition. BitCandy are totally impressed by the thought put into both of Batmanglij's tracks - so y'know, a whole album, please?
