DOWNLOAD: Eject, "Clementine" (mp3)
As one half of the awesome synthpop duo Cassette, force-multiplying hired keyboardist behind bands like Lovewhip and Campaign for Real Time, and flag-waving remixer for the idiosyncratic DIY/electro collective Compound 440r, Michael Potvin is one of the dudes who is singlehandedly big-upping Boston's party-music coefficient. His latest endeavor is the ridiculously catchy electrpop duo Eject. With Human League-sized hooks and a DIY, Magnetic Fields-ish sense of scale, their songs boil adult relationships down to playground-when-we-were-kids simplicity. Him: "My friends say that I like you they make fun of me." Her: "She told me that she likes you, I promised I wouldn't tell." Us: sobbing, laughing, raiding mom and dad's liquor cabinet. This is an extended remix taken from the scene-stealing C440r double-disc anthology Local Collections 2006; the "original" version will appear on Eject's debut record, out soon.
