FH005 Oxykitten – Toucht

RIYL: Analog synth jams and peyote bubble gum

Oxykitten is not afraid to have some fun. The brainchild of Bob Coctostin, the middle west mob-dance legend, Oxykitten is the collision of Morodor synths and a tongue firmly planted in a 21st century aesthetic. While the music elite are looking back with interest at minimal wave, Oxykitten is riding that sound into the future with Toucht, an album of lo-fi club tracks created by analog technology along with a pinch of drugs.

Recorded on a problematic reel to reel 4-track with some of the crappiest drum machines known to man, Toucht emerged full of glittering life and ready for a party. Rife with homages to French Minimal Wave and 70’s Library with a dash of modern sensibilities, Toucht, is an update of sound long vanished into the annuals of music history. If you ache for the innocent days when Molly Ringwald was the next big thing and lo-fi synth pop ruled the airwaves, Oxykitten will take you back with Toucht.

(Oxykitten is Wayne Longer of Portland, OR)
