Milosh - Right Never Comes
The singer and producer best known as one half of Rhye — whose debut album Woman was among last year’s absolute best — has begun work on an EP under his own name. This project, much like his previous one, is a simmering composition, built as much from silence as sound. At once heady and sober, grounded and airy, Milosh’s gentle croon contains multitudes in its shifting stillness.
To what extent this project might expand or distract from Rhye remains to be seen. For now, you can enjoy the sounds of Milosh solo through soundcloud, and live with Rhye, who will be starting a North American tour of both their last release and Milosh’s newer work.
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.
