As oOoOO, San Fransisco-based Christopher Dexter Greenspan creates a dark, slow sound that’s a bit more accessible than that of his contemporary cousins, but every bit as rewarding. One of oOoOO’s finest moments is a snare-filled, bass-heavy scalpel to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” that has its origins in schaffel. Greenspan’s forthcoming self-titled EP for Tri Angle Records keeps one foot in pop and one foot in the darkness. “Hearts,” the first single from oOoOO, is everything an oOoOO song should be: pretty and twisted.
Bonus: oOoOO remix Salem’s “Asia” by choking it within an inch of its life and then allowing it, slowly, to breathe again.
