Otherness (Man/Miracle, Elephant & Castle) – “Crystalline” and “Salt Water”

Crystalline by Otherness Here are two songs from Otherness, a new project from Dylan Travis (Man/Miracle) and Dave Reep (Elephant & Castle). As one might expect, the sound is a mixture of charismatic vocals and electronic textures, and I'm looking forward to hearing more about/from these guys in the future. Extra points for some great Bandcamp tagging: "tags: cough syrp heavy vibes marley's mello moods oakchester witch-weed-soul-jazz-funk Oakland." (Hat tip to Ears of the Beholder.) Salt Water by Otherness By the way, Man/Miracle and Skeletal System are playing at Amnesia this Saturday night. Details below.
