Song of the week: James Pants, “Sitting on the Couch, Turning Into Stone”

I first heard this song while listening to oOoOO’s excellent and eclectic FACT mix, and I have to say it’s been stuck in my head (and on repeat) ever since. I especially love the rolling, fuzzy bass and the instrumental break that’s reminiscent of Middle Eastern music in the best possible way. In the words of no less than Spoek Mathambo: “this sounds to me like what Tricky should sound like in 2010 whispering over smoked out beats and dope female vox…SICK!”
