The lead-off single from OME's new album 'Brick Body Kids Still Daydream' is a sublimely reflective slice of nostalgia with none of the comfort or security that term implies, rather Mike seems all too aware of the actual pain of true nostalgia, the horrifying moment when you snap back from an immersive memory into the harsh present. Couched in radiant keys and simple minimal beats, Mike takes us on a journey where he and his friends go searching for a radio in a moment of total media-deprivation. It's a deeply suggestive and enormously moving track and it isn't even the best thing off the new album. Mike, like MMG, continues to absorb and progress every time he drops. Essential.
