New Super VHS: “Goodbye My Old Friend”

Lo-fi project Super VHS sure know how to get a lot out of a little. New song “Goodbye My Old Friend” finds VHS teasing a slightly disorienting dance beat to open up the song, before warm keyboard and typically muffled vocals creep in. What really makes “Goodbye My Old Friend” – and most of Super VHS’ music up to this point – interesting is all the small touches they fit into these economical tunes. Check the distant vocals lurking beneath the already intelligible main singing, or the way new drum sounds just pop up at times in the manic back-half of the track. It closes with a nice guitar bit, a nice low-budget exclamation point for a song done by one of the better bare-bones folks in Japan. Listen below.
