Black Strobe- “Folsom Prison Blues”

Liking this dark electronic blues track from Black Strobe. A Johnny Cash cover, it has the crooning brylcreem quiff deepness of vocals but what’s cool about it is the track is abstractly built from nice analogue sounding synths and organs. Dark sinewaves pan out this sinister blues and twinkling filtered electronics slowly build as it progresses and an organ sweeps to keep you hooked into that blues format you know all too well. The combination of that all too well known blues motif, Cash lyrics and abstract production makes this a very filling and engaging listen. The new album ‘GODFORSAKEN ROADS is out 6th October.
