Track Of The Day: Roman Ruins - "Mighty Love"

Roman Ruins is the project of Graham Hill who has played drums for Papercuts and Beach House.  It should be no surprise that Hill has a spectacular ear for percussion creativity.  On "Mighty Love", the track opens with the sound of feet running on a crunchy surface and slowly becomes the backbone for a dreamy and expansive track filled with twists and turns.  It takes a bit for all the sounds to come together, but once Hill's Beck like vocals kick in, the track hits a nice groove that holds strong until the end.  This is a very laid back track that upon multiple listens new layers are uncovered and the listener is rewarded.  Keep an eye on Roman Ruins and if you like what you hear, pre-order the limited 12" from Gold Robot Records.
