No, you’re not seeing a ‘missing image’ icon.  That tragic digital countenance is the cover art for Kody Nielson’s newest project Silicon, a funky electronic psych trip flowing in the same vein as Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s newest full-length Multi-Love.  The similarities with UMO don’t end there.  Kody’s brother is Ruban Nielson, the front man of the aforementioned lofi psych soul brother trio, and Kody helped write, produce and play drums and keys on Multi-Love.

Personal Computer, at first glance, sounds like it’s taking a similar path as Multi-Love, expressing its voice through drippy funk guitar swirls, trippy studio trickery, muted bass tones and that effortlessly soulful Nielson falsetto.

Weird World Records is releasing the limited yellow wax and this thing is out next week, so there’s no telling how many more copies remain.  Your $25 is going a long way here, as it also comes with a book of Kody Nielson’s original paintings, many of which will soon be exhibited in Auckland, New York and London.  Greatness.
