Following the chilled out, ramshackle musings of Tinkerbox, Aussie Spoonbill went back to the wood shop to tinker with his own sound. Always a master craftsman, Jim Moynihan was able to reinvent himself once again with a return to the big brassy bass that brought him to the attention of so many in the glitch-hop community.
Assembling a 4-track EP for his beloved Omelette Records, Spoonbill blazes back to our speakers with Squawkus, a triumphantly odd and incredibly intricate assortment of tunes inspired by anything and everything that crosses this audio wizard's path.
Today, we premiere "Bingle Rust," a rollicking ride through myriad styles that kickstarts with a thousand metric tons of subsonic force. Elements of Mariachi music and spaghetti westerns flood into the back half of the tune, where shiny trumpets blare alongside twangy guitars. It's a peek inside the rusty clockwork parts in Spoony's head. The single is out tomorrow (May 20), and you can get the full EP June 10th.
