James Pants & Vex Ruffin are KRISTA

Blake Gillespie

KRISTA

If there's one thing we'll never get enough of it's vintage James Pants. Perhaps someday we'll lend insight into the office tradition of interns dancing to Pants' “We're Through” – it's part of the job and most certainly not hazing.

By teaming up with Vex Ruffin, Pants has revisited his Welcome-era electro-funk with a group the two are calling KRISTA. Vex Ruffin is known for his minimalist punk that teeters into rap-dom, but here he's immersed in a Pantsian world of analog synths and interstellar funk. “Space Tom Test” is heartbroken and angsty with a chorus of “I told you a thousand times”, magnified from the billions to trillions. For all the warnings on the A-side, it should be no surprise that gun shots ring out on “I Told You Man, I Carry A Gun” because they friggin' warned you a trillion times.

No word of whether this is a one-off collaboration or an introduction into something much bigger, but it would be a tragedy if all KRISTA ever amounted to was one helluva great 45.
