THEY DON’T LOVE YOU LIKE AIRHEAD LOVES YOU

AIRHEAD – WAIT

Fellow label-mate (and plain-old mate of James Blake), Robert McAndrews, has created an ode to the wonderful voice of Karen O. Under his producer moniker Airhead, he has released what is a wonderfully deconstructed meditation on the Dull Life lyrics “We’ve seen the nightmare of your lies…” and “Iron bars, everything…”, mixed with the “Wait” from Maps for good measure. The relationship with James Blake is evident in the song’s presentation, with its behind-the-beat drums and gaps of silence. However, the guitar and build feel more like an intro to an Explosions in the Sky tune, giving it a bit more flesh than your average Blake track. It’s marvellous.
