So, if the name Rostam Batmanglij doesn’t ring any bells, that’s understandable. You’re probably more familiar with his contribution to Vampire Weekend and Discovery, both amazing bands that have their own distinct sound. Just know that everything that Rostam touches turns into gold. Take a listen to this track (assuming you know both of the tracks he mashed up) and how he seamlessly weaves elements of both of the source tracks. To me, this further solidifies Rostam’s seat in the Indie hall of fame and to someone who enjoys electro-indie, he should definitely be on your radar at all times.
