Track of the Day: Stag Hare
In the same enchanted forest of reverb and rainbow synths that houses bands like Animal Collective and Deerhunter, Utah's Stag Hare is making a nest out of chimes, shaker percussion, and lots of fuck-with-your-head electronic echoes. The songs come on slow, like a high that's subtle as it drops from your brain down through your feet--but then all of a sudden you're really stoned. Stag treats your grey matter delicately, though, his mostly instrumental tracks meditative with rhythms that run in deep circles. Check out "Holy Quinn" while staring into the stars, surf, and trees pictured all over his Web site. If the song makes your ears tingle in a good way, Stag Hare will bring his peaceful soundtracks to Project One tonight.
