need a quick pick me up? i've got just the track for you, wrap your ears around this frenetic, high-octane, vocoder-laced, electro pop track, Don't Look Down from Auckland-based one-man-band F In Math {Michael Logie ex Mint Chicks bassist} off his debut "The Couch" EP (2011).

Don't Look Down is an intense, beat-laden, blipped-out, chiptune/8bit-worshiping, virtuosic-bass thrashing, sonic roller-coaster ride, this track could have easily been the theme song to some after school 80s kids adventure cartoon. F In Math really needs to be seen/experienced live to be believed, Logie is a total machine onstage, his pyrotechnical bass playing alone is something to behold, i've seen him play when his voice was completely short circuiting, yet he kept going, have you ever seen someone trying to sing into a vocoder with no voice? it's totally ridiculous, but Logie managed to pull it off with his insane energy et humor! enjoy!

the epic cover art is by Paekakariki-based illustrator Tane Williams, it slots right in to the great tradition of hand drawn Flying Nun covers. 

MP3: Don't Look Down

check out the tripped-out music video for Don't Look Down, directed by Marc Swadel.

i recommend taking the unique, kinetic musical experience that is the "Couch" EP, it is available from Flying Nun Records on cd or mp3, you can also stream the album on the F In Math bandcamp et purchase it on cd, or you can grab it as a digital download from itunes.
