Gobby, “Seagate”

We're really digging the Gobby record New Hat, out now on UNO. As the producer for queer rapper Mykki Blanco, he has created a very specific style of nerve-wracking digital fever, with Mykki adding the fun on top. "Seagate" is just Gobby, and so the strings are strung tightly and pulled repeatedly with the release being in minor touches that feel almost comedic. There is a sample that could be a cat whining, or a human going "aww", but filtered through the inflected mania tunnel, you can't help but giggle, just to relieve the pressure. Jamie Krasner matches the tone with her grainy, choppy video, peering into windows around New England, and then peering closer.
