Bobcat Rob

On Friday, August 12, Santa Cruz’s Bobcat Rob & the Nightly Howl released a new single entitled “Drain Pipe.” Much like a bobcat in a riparian woodland, the song is oneiric and mysterious. As an offering for those who often shy from the transcendental or mythical, “Drain Pipe” is a chance encounter. There in the bedraggled mulch is a rusted drain pipe: this strange alien thing to be sniffed.

“Drain Pipes,” in the leagues and languages of the legendary Lambchop, is another by Bobcat Rob in a series of ethereal tunes released this year. Rich in textures and with matured, patient chord changes, the song invites you to dream and venture through a tranquil experience achieved in his natural habitat.
