Boy In Static - "Starlet (Freezepop Remix)" / by Matt Bomarr

"Starlet" is a straight-forward pop song from from Alexander Chen's Bay Area-via-Boston project Boy In Static. He has a new EP of the same name which came out on Circle Into Square back in July. Fellow Bostonians Freezepop turn this already great song into a great little synthpop jam with sort of a timeless sound. Alexander has toured with 13 & God (the "supergroup" consisting of Jel & Doseone of Anticon and The Notwist). He also got his start after getting a demo to the Notwist's Markus Acher, which ended up getting him signed to Alien Transistor. He has also gone on to release stuff on Mush Records. Keep an eye out for this guy.
