((yourfeetstoobig)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Yes! Another exceptional electro one man band! And I gotta tell you something, writing about yourfeetstoobig (no spaces needed, you see) right now is funny because we JUST wrote a profile on this similarly sounding band R E A L M A G I C that goes crazy with the spaces. What a wacky world we live in, people. What a wacky, wacky world.

Anyway, yourfeetstoobig is Chicago's Kevin Benishek. This 22-year-old is GOOD. His electroness reminds me a lot of what Com Truise is doing. Yourfeetstoobig also receives chill-wave-y comparisons to Washed Out and Memory Tapes and guys like that too. Whatever he sounds like, he sounds like awesome to me. Big dance beats over super catchy synths that groove in that lo-fi retro '80s video game kind of way? You, sir, had me at "Big." (I'm a huge Tom Hanks fan... huge).

The best news about all this? You can download yourfeetstoobig's excellent EP FOR FREE over at their bandcamp page. I love it when that happens. Free rules so much more than paying for things.

So yeah, check yourfeetstoobig out. And if the next profile I write is about a band called, say, "giantG I A N T" I just might start to wonder what delightful magic the world has in store for me.
