A buzzmaking producer and engineer hailing from Oakland, California, Matt “Shortcircles” Tamariello is preparing to release his debut studio album (the follow-up to a pair of 2012 EPs) via Plug Research. As a taste of what listeners can look forward to on the project, the Booth newcomer has liberated On My Mind, a standout cut created in collaboration with Bay Area singer Sarah K. Melfy. The headliner’s boardwork is an exercises in ear-pleasing minimalism; a dry, syncopated percussion rhythm ticks away in the background, accented by shifting layers of airy synths, harp and reversed strings. Melfy’s ethereal vocals prove a natural fit for the record’s vibe, adding a touch of melody without monopolizing aural space. For this blissfully mellow cut and much more, check out Shortcircles’ Between Waves LP when it hits record stores and online retailers Tuesday, June 18.
