Com Truise 'Broken Date' (Ghostly)

MP3: Com Truise 'Brokendate' (direct link via Ghostly)

I've heard a lot of artists take an already famous name and twist it around slightly to create a new brand that is both familiar and memorable. Joy Orbison, Jichael Mackson, Ric Y Martin etc. Com Truise is one of the newest to pop onto the scene and his space age beats may not be approved by the Church of Scientology but, who cares if they are really.

His new album, the space age cheese sandwich- 'Galactic Melt,' out now on Ghostly, uses all those drum pad bursts and floating synths that made growing up in the 80's RAD.

The album moves from track to track like levels of an original NES game. Zelda meets Metroid in a face off against Mega Man. To some this may seem like we've all been there and heard this album before- that couldn't be further from the truth. This album is best experienced with headphones on a grey and rainy Summer afternoon with some form of relaxing extras. You catch my drift.

Catch Mr. Truise on tour currently across the US through September and pick up the album from Ghostly now.
