new: Greatest Hits

"Take Your Time"
Apparently Zak Mering doesn't sleep. Between dropping tons of new Raw Thrills shit (he put another CD-R up on his site the other day), dude somehow finds time to craft more explosive schizo-synth jams as part of Greatest Hits with Tyler Thacker. Ariel Pink comparison's are definitely warranted, but Greatest Hits dwell in darker club zones, salivating over ketamine beats while fetishizing over black light posters. The club they hang in is probably one of their bedrooms, but that shouldn't take away from the fog machine, strobe light ethos, as its those first times at your friends b-day sleepover with a boombox and an older brother's strobe that really set the tone for Greatest Hits Vol.1. Be sure to peep track 3, "Make You Mine", one of the finer pieces of straight up dance pop I've heard in a minute. "Danse Pop" too.
