Like neat-looking, 2GB capacity USBs? Down with the subtle stylings of up-and-coming fashion brand Libertine Libertine? Dig spooked, trip-hop-y, Boards of Canada-esque beats? We were sort of hoping that your answers to these questions would be a resounding ‘YES!’, and if that’s the case we have a real treat in store for you. You see, we’ve collaborated with the lovely peeps at Libertine Libertine and the outcome is this wooden USB, which not only looks pretty neat but also contains the new debut album of Pantherman (AKA Bjarke Niemann, the frontman of Danish electro-rockers Spleen United) that really is a bit special. The album ‘Ghosts + Colour TV’ contains groovily named tracks like ‘LSD-KID&&&666’ and ‘The Church of MJ Fox’ and the whole album chugs along at a pleasantly eerie, sufficiently trippy hip hop pace that’ll make you dream hazy dreams of electric sheep and nostalgic for lo-tech times that never were.
Bjarke is playing his first gig as Pantherman in Hamburg on Friday, which in all likelihood won’t be his last. Go get the new AIAIAI & Libertine Libertine USB key and see what all the fuss is about!
