|1.||"My So-Called Friends" (Fred P reshape)|
With just one former appearance on a collaborative release for 8Bit, Michael Gracioppo gets snapped up by MCDE for a pair of decidedly oddball offerings with as much indie-pop and soul woven into the tracks as anything electronic. "My So-Called Friend" lolls around a vocal theme that sounds as though it could belong to The Flaming Lips school of songwriting, while a fidgety micro-beat and LFOing chords make up the musical construction. "Untitled" meanwhile pitches down a mournful croon to come on like Isaac Hayes while a snappy and detailed steppy rhythm pulses out underneath and bird noises tweet around the mix. Fred P brings a touch of focus to the first track with his remix, but still manages to keep the wayward spirit of the vocal intact.
