Fan is Meric Long from the Dodos. He made these songs using two synths left behind after his father's passing. Both Fire (above) and Disappear, the b-side, are fantastic. Definitely Dodos-esque in some ways (a good thing), they have that kind of roused-fury sound that appears in many of the full band's songs, a kind of shift from calm lullaby to something that sounds more aggressive and energetic, coiled. Disappear, while sounding of a piece with Fire, stretches in a different direction for Long, the bottom drops out halfway through the song and releases into a cold wave of synth. It's a great turn.

[BUY Fire b/w Disappear]
