The gentleman in the picture above is Tourist. In a previous life he was known as Little Loud, but that moniker is now dead. Which is a shame, because all of us here at the blog were fans. Luckily the name change hasn’t meant his new material is any less exciting. The material in question is a song called ‘Placid Acid’, which is going to be on an EP released on Make Mine in March. It starts off quiet and almost – so very nearly! – sounds like it’s about to drop into a garage influenced beat. That is just a teasing moment though, as the song slides into a laid-back, 80’s influenced synth driven groove that doesn’t go on long enough.
As I already mentioned, he’s got an EP out in March. Check back closer to the time and we’ll have the buy links up. For now, enjoy ‘Placid Acid’ and if you’re interested you can listen to some bits we posted from his previous life as Little Loud you can listen here.
