[MP3] Harlan – “1984”

everywhere i go they’re watching me, every night i pray they’ll set me free

Harlan has already kicked out one of the year’s best EPs, Native Son, and he is now dropping another. The title track “1984” kicks up the 80s funk vibe and just when you are lulled into dancing or sexing or whatever that guitar solo comes in and everything feels that much more epic for a second. I was just epically typing there for a second. For reals.

This kind of brain peeling guitar work is standard Harlan fare and you can see it LIVE in one week. The Burning Ear is presenting Harlan at The Satellite here in Los Angeles with a couple more great bands and a beautiful poster designed by Jacob Youngblood Ziegler.

If you happen to live elsewhere then cross your fingers that its one of these elsewhere and you can catch him with Mayer Hawthorne!
