Big Black Delta is a solo project by Jonathan Bates of Mellowdrone. I admit I don’t quite understand BBD’s “Betamax,” but it’s compulsively listenable:
Coming up in the spring is a new BBD album called Tragame Tierra — I don’t get that either — and to get you in the proper mindset, Stereogum has posted the song “RCVR” (rhymes with, among other things, “BLVR”), featuring, and somewhat inspired by, Debbie Gibson. It’s terribly good. Really.
