A right little treat now from Brooklyn-based Taylor McFerrin in the form of blissful new track 'The Antidote'. It features the distinctively energetic and soulfully lilting vocals of Nai Palm, the chief driving force in terms of singing/songwriting behind Melbourne band Hiatus Kaiyote (whose song 'Nakamarra' featuring Q-Tip was nominated for a Grammy earlier this year).

Anyway, 'The Antidote' itself is a sumptuously organic percussion – shakers, woodblock clicks, sharp hi-hats – arranged in garage style, washed with waves of synth that inspire low-key euphoria. Guitar joins the party by the end, muffled with slight distortion and gentle wah-wah, ending the track with a sound that conjures exotic desert raves supplied with deliciously frosty fruit punch and an eternity of sunshine.

This is from Taylor McFerrin's Early Riser album, out 3rd June 2014 on LA label Brainfeeder.
