LISTEN: Rabbit on Acid – “Psycho Killer “

 

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything out of Rabbit on Acid, and it would seem that he’s taken that time to learn a little about step sequencers and synths. Returning here for a classic of the Talking Heads classic Psycho Killer, he puts an almost danceable spin on the track. The vocals here run through a vocoder -that thing that stupid Peter Frampton rocks on his dumb guitar for his whack song- which gives the whole song an almost antiseptic appeal. To my ears, this is a song from a dystopian future written by robots who just want to know what it’s like to be human. Framing in that context gives it that appropriate darkness, but taps into the sci-fi inherent to medium, or at least that’s how my brain works.

Check it out below and get ready to get weirdly funky.
