I’m a big fan of layered sounds. The best music is often like the best meals: simple, quality ingredients are paired with a few essential flavors to allow the food’s most redeeming qualities to shine. This is the type of recipe that Brooklyn band Conveyor serves up on a regular basis. They dropped their latest single “Mukraker” this week. The band reminds me of Portland’s Typhoon, with a little more minimalism. It takes skill to break a song down to its core and then rebuild with only the most important pieces. Too often bands wind up masking that essential melody beneath sounds that distract rather than support. Stream “Mukraker” below, and keep your eyes peeled for their full length debut later this year.
