Miami, FL is known for their widespread electronic music scene, but buried underneath all of the blips and bass is a thriving indie-music culture begging to be heard. Still, instead of complaining about the lack of shine that the non-electronic acts get, South Florida natives Michael John Hancock and Brian Robertson aka ANR (formerly known as Awesome New Republic) did the next best thing: married the two genres, and released the bands breakout LP, Stay Kids, earlier this year.
Theyve since been remixed by the likes of Millionyoung and Memory Tapes, and now after opening for bands like No Age, Animal Collective, and Neon Indian are readying a deluxe edition of Stay Kids set for release on September 13th (via 10K Islands). The re-release sees the addition of several new tracks including New Armor, which CoS is streaming exclusively below. The track opens with a slinky acoustic guitar riff, but explodes into a full on psychedelic onslaught of joyous horns, whirring synth, and driving drums. Check it out below.
