If you think about it, Dave Einmo -- the multi-talented writer/ producer/ musical visionary behind Seattle electronica act Head Like a Kite -- is sort of like a poor man's Damon Albarn. Which is to say: Head Like a Kite are sort of like a poor man's Gorillaz -- mixing pop, rap, hip-hop, and electronic noise -- and recruiting an impressively wide range of other musicians -- to craft an album that ebbs and flows like a carefully-themed playlist on the hippest and coolest of college rock radio stations.
Of course, HLAK don't have nearly the record sales under their belt -- at least not yet. But that could all change with their most recent, Dreams Suspend Night, a thrillingly insatiable musical journey that has quickly become one of my fave underrated albums of the year.
