Chrome Sparks – Nod Your Head to This

For indietronica and downtempo fans – you’ll want to listen to this one over and over again. Chrome Sparks, aka Jeremy Malvin, grew up in Pittsburgh and moved to Ann Arbor to study percussion. He’s now making beats in Brooklyn, NY, but his education, perhaps in and out of school, sure paid off. His single “Marijuana” is part of a GRLMTN compilation, a collection of songs from an Ann Arbor based music collective called AAURAL II. Its definitely got swag, without having the ostentatious feel associated with this word in the hip hop world. No, there’s no garish showmanship here,  just tight beats, pretty harp- and flute-like sounds, and a solid groove that’ll make your neck zig and zag. “Marijuana” is available for download (or purchase!) on bandcamp.
