Brooklyn-based songwriter and self taught electronic musician Bring Prudence (Oleh Zaychenko) released a beautiful EP called Aliens back in August. All this time, I've been thinking that I was going to post about one of the tracks from it here on the blog, right up until I started to put together this post and I realized that the track I had in mind all along was from his 2010 record Engineers. I guess I'll have to blame this on my sometimes lack of attention to detail, as well as the general chaotic nature of my iTunes library at times.
Either way, Engineers AND the newish Aliens EP are both worth a listen. Both have beats, synths, and catchy melodies. You can pick them both up right here.
