I'll admit that I'm not totally sold on this song, but I'm posting it anyway because it's such a strange pairing. Former Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle
has used electronic flourishes in his music, but you'd hardly catch him lording over laptops and turntables at all-night parties. Meanwhile, Crystal Method
came out of the early '90s rave scene and has yet to leave the dancefloor. Somehow these two disparate acts came together to record, though, and the result is the song "Slipstream."
The single floats Lytle's delicate, airy vocals above the clinical throb of drum machines, hard guitar riffs, and a bramble of other synthetic sound effects. Both act play San Francisco in the next two weeks.
