Every single day I pilfer my inbox I discover something new and great and ponder my previous ignorance. You learn something every day, and a lot of my learning revolves around obscure indie artists and their various albums, lyrics, and vitals.
Today, I found out about this Chris Malinchak dude and his latest single “If U Got It”. I ain’t got it, cause it has a rather long radio lead-in baked into it, but the free track he gave away…I’m so into it, and its “So Into You”. These artists that bridge the gap between electronic production and a slightly more pop aesthetic absolutely fascinate me. Unlike the vast majority of other indie artists of the pop, hip-hop, or rock persuasion, they seem to maintain their older fans as they explode into international behemoths.
Chris Malinchak may not be an international behemoth yet, but popping up on the radio and in actual print press outside the blogosphere portends great things are ahead. “So Into You” is a bit beyond my descriptive skills, but its got the goods. I ain’t gonna kick it out of the bed.
