Jared and Amarah from the Sour Notes have a side project under the alias of Memory Keepers. They have just given birth to their Daft Punk lite take on Brian Eno’s “Third Uncle”. Eno recorded and released his original as a part of his second solo album ‘Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)’. The song was also covered by Bauhaus in the early 80s. My memory of the Brian Eno track was that it was a ground breaking piece of electronica and it is. However Memory Keepers take it to yet another level of electronica. This is an infectious and insanely danceable version of a great song with treated vocals reminiscent of classic Air. The is the first release from an EP expected early next year. It was recorded at Sour Patch Bay in Austin, Texas. Then mixed at The Treehouse in Houston, Texas by Steve Christensen and mastered at Timeless Mastering in Brooklyn, New York by Heba Kadry. A big thank you to those lovely folk at Noisy Ghost PR for giving me the chance to take this track for a spin. Click here to listen to this exciting new release on SoundCloud.
