LISTEN: Hard Mix — “I Wonder Why You Cry”

October 20, 2011

mp3 & stream

I treat South Carolina’s Hard Mix like a cutter in the bottom of the 9th: only for situations when it’s most crucial, and especially when I wanna get an out. The sounds of Defaults (still available for a FREE download here), one of my favorite albums of 2011, acts a lot like one of the most aggravating throws in baseball. It seems straight forward at first, but there’s that pinch, that slight mannerism that makes you bend your knees.

The newest ten minute jam from the unsung hero of any dance party, “I Wonder Why You Cry” screams like a curve ball for a strikeout. A clash of echoed glockenspiel and thumping bass drum hit like the synapses of a heart beat, and above that are flights of sampled vocals that get’s that double play to rally the crowd. Enough of the baseball references. Stream “I Wonder Why You Cry” and all it’s glory below:
