Com Truise

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 15, 2012

New musical obsession: Com Truise. It’s basically all I’ve listened to over the past two weeks.

While subliminally informed by both parental record collections and hints of faded electronics product design, Haley’s Com Truise project isn’t just nostalgia capitalization. There are fragments (read: DNA strands) of Joy Division, New Order, and the Cocteau Twins, but it’s like you’re hearing them through the motherboard of a waterlogged Xbox-demented and modern. He’s got a way of making familiar things sound beautifully hand-smeared.

He’s on SoundCloud and if you like that, check out a couple of his albums: In Decay and Galactic Melt. Got the rec from Dan Cederholm, who tweeted intriguingly, “Daft Punk’s Tron soundtrack was brilliant, yes. I’m voting Com Truise for Tron 3.”
