Edmonton, Alberta’s Dylan Khotin-Foote, formerly Happy Trendy and now simply Khotin is bringing his frosty pop electronics into house-ier territory with his upcoming album, Hello World. He had a woozy gem on champion bedroom-pop label Orchid Tapes’ recent compilation, and Hello World will drop on the decidedly more synthetic web label 1080p.
The first track we’re hearing from that project is Why Don’t We Talk, an indecisive and bright synth charade with an ever-wobbling bass line, tropical horn flickers, and jittering percussion. Hello World drops July 1 digitally and on cassette. Listen to Why Don’t We Talk below.
