Oakland based multi-instrumentalist and producer Nate Brenner is a very talented and busy man, with his membership in Tune-Yards and other projects. Under his Naytronix moniker, Brenner released two albums, 2012’s Dirty Glow and 2015’s Mister Divine. Both brilliant, both made it our Picks of the Year, so news of a new album is very welcome and highly anticipated.
Naytronix’s third LP is called Air and will see release through Kieku Records. While mainly a solo endeavour, Air does feature a few special collaborative guests such as Mwahaha´s Ross Peacock, Tune-Yards’ Merrill Garbus, songwriter Madeline Kenney, percussionist Hamir Atwal and guitarist Mark Allen-Piccolo.
Alongside the album announcement, Naytronix has shared the first advance single, ‘Human’, which he describes as “a groovy psyche pop song that leaps between a menacing bass riff and a lush Technicolor piano section”. Take a listen now.
