I really dig the stuff Cool Runnings has been putting out of late. It's great, dreamy pop stuff. There are points in I am You where the synths sound like they were recorded to cassette tape, and the tape keeps slowing down and speeding up. But pop music is about synchronicity (no, not The Police album, although that is pretty good) and in the end, as collage/pastiche-like as it all feels, it all fits together to create something beautiful. I've also included Star Slinger's remix of the track, which refines the song and shows there are some fundamentals making this whole machine work in the first place. I'm torn though: original or remix? Either way, two gems in one go.
