life without gosh pith feels almost unfathomable. the detroit duo have turned in consistently strong – and usually gorgeous – collages of soul-infused electronic music for the past few years, carving out their own niche of self-described “cosmic trap” before venturing beyond that genre’s rather ambiguous borders.
the joshes smith and freed are currently hashing out their debut full-length after two indelible extended plays; the as-yet untitled effort should see the light of day in 2017, and previous singles “in my car” and “true blue” have offered a faint glimpse of what the album has to offer.
gosh pith broadened that spectrum of possibilities today with “medusa,” a brief, downtempo new cut that leans heavily on subterranean bass thuds and a host of percussive timbres skittering around a steadfast vocal delivery. after a few listens, the dollar sign in the song’s title feels both quite topical and like a subtle homage. take a listen to “medusa” below.
