Greg Vand who used to be in High-Functioning Flesh is now making music as Newboy. Having already released a great LP on LA label Night Gaunt Recordings two years ago, expectations were high for the sophomore record. DKA Records released the selftitled tape Newboy last month and this is also kind of a mini-album. The six tracks mix post-punk with early synth and industrial music like Cabaret Voltaire and Portion Control. “Rain Clouds” is a great example of his playful attitude to making music that is almost danceable but not quite.
