Ford & Lopatin's Joel Ford Announces New Solo EP as Airbird
Published Apr 11, 2012Just over a year ago, electronic pop duo Games rebranded themselves as Ford & Lopatin and launched the Mexican Summer side-label Software. What followed was a series of excellent releases, and that streak will hopefully continue with a new EP from Joel Ford's solo project Airbird.
The five-song effort is called Trust, and it marks the first release from Ford since moving from New York City to Asheville, NC. As a press release explains, he's currently "obsessed with the dichotomy of big city culture versus the solitude of the American wilderness."
The write-up continues by promising, "Oblique rhythm schemes, computer-funk, and oceanic pop drift song" that ultimately "create a unique look at the contemporary e-music scene."
While we haven't heard the whole thing just yet, album track "Goodnight" definitely suggests good things to come from this release. Stream it below.
Trust will be available on May 29 and can be pre-ordered here.
