A minimalist folk/Krautpop car crash - that's nice to watch
Hortlax Cobra. Good name. It is the side project of John Eriksson, of Peter Bjorn and John fame. Not so good name (or band). Hey they are OK - that whistling song was catchy, before driving many to suicide due to ridiculous over rotation and product placement overdrive - but I like the new sound a little more. Its got a definite Kraftwerk/Notwist sound to it - it is ultra simplistic - and its a little innocent in its lustrous wonder. Eriksson claims that Hortlax Cobra is a futuristic pop/art amalgam, and that he was inspired by paintings, collages and sketch drawings when creating these sounds. Definitely worth checking out, that's for sure.
