The fine folks over at Fort Lowell Records who brought us that awesome 7″ by the Dead Westerns late last year are back with their first release of 2011 – and it is another solid hit. The Devadasi 7″ is the physical debut of Los Angeles’ Death Kit. The a-side “Devadasi” is sure to be one of the year’s strongest synth-pop gems and alone is worth the price of the record. It features brightly-lit synths, glass-smooth vocals, and purposeful percussion that alternates between stumbling and steady. Sporting an ambiance that calls to mind 80’s Cure singles, but a grooving electro-disco rhythm that transform this cut into a contemporary synth-anthem… well, let’s just say that I think you’re probably going to like it. The b-side is a remix of the band’s first digital single “I Can Make You Love Me” by …music video? and imposes skittery electro-percussion, twinkling lights and a rubbery groove to the tune. It is set for release on February 22, 2010 from Fort Lowell. Get it before it is gone.
