R. Missing – Crimeless (YouTube)

R. Missing released a noir electro pop single called Crimeless through Sugarcane Records, a label that has brought us David Lynch, Com Truise, and Hot Chip. The single is accompanied by three remixes: two by GusGus and one by The KVB.

All four tracks have their own music videos, so there is a lot to consume with this release. R. Missing is produced by Sharon Shy and Henry Frost (The Ropes), and this single is one that synth pop lovers will put on repeat. Crimeless follows the addictive Placeholder For The Night, released late 2020.

Crimeless opens with a dark pulsating synth, bright analog synth pads, and a kick; a high pass filter sweeps as the song opens up. Sharon’s vocals come in with a vocal plate as the instrumentation opens up. The instrumentation builds with more complex beats and layers of synths. The song is full of dynamics and tones changes that make it really interesting to listen to. New elements are noticed with every repeated listen.

The remixes feel like different songs, bringing their own tones and sounds as they reimagine Crimeless. Iceland’s GusGus shines through with their electronic brilliance. The second GusGus remix is simply a “clean mix” with fewer elements. The KVB remix feels like yet another song, mixing in atmospheric guitars.

Jon Morrow releases sophomore single ‘I’m No One’

Jon Morrow releases sophomore single ‘I’m No One’

Jon Morrow is a songwriter from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, writing dreamy and personal songs. He uses a drum machine, which sounds like a beat from an old Casio (that’s a positive), a looping electric guitar running through a tremolo or vibey chorus pedal, and layers of vocals and harmonies with a high pass filter applied.

Puddlegum Studio and Plans for 2022

A 2021 developed, so did my vision. My goal was to move toward expanding the blog as a full-blown recording studio, both co-existing and supporting the other. This vision is taking shape, and the studio will be opening in the coming weeks.
