Not long after the initial onslaught of 2012, essentially during the first minutes of this New Year... my email inbox was graced with a message from one "Thomas Defferson" @ ILLAV8R. Labeled, "HAPPY NEW ∂eƒ Sound!! "A Song Called Anything" featuring Alex Isley" said email contained a BRAND NEW mp3 track from eclectic artist, Def Sound. One of my [early] favorite lyrical fragments from the track alternatively stylized and accented as "▲.song.called.åny†hing." has to be "If plan A fails - 25 letters left." Produced-recorded by equally eclectic artists, ®C & Brook D'Leau, "anything" really is a pretty solid blend of genres: Rock, Hip-Hop, Funk-Soul, Jazz, Dance, R&B, Electronic. Def Sounds.'s long-rumored sophomore album, "Anything: The Idea Machine" is coming soon(er) - This coming Spring. If you like what you hear, surf on over to Def Sound.'s Bandcamp page and check out his densely-layered backcatalog, tunes which should aptly suffice during this lay-over period.
