Mere mention of 3DCOSBY takes us on an acid-ride flashback deep into the wooly, trippy sweater patterns great comedian Bill wore back in the hazy-lazy ’80s. But there’s more than just nostalgic joyrides through the boobtube in the artfully bent sounds of Matt Ross and Daniel Harris, an experimental duo who became fast friends at the ripe old age of three and who shared a childhood love of Michael Jackson, afternoon soccer practice, and hours watching the New Kids on the Block cartoon TV series. 3dCosby describe themselves as a “veritable gang-bang of nerdom,” and “Paint By Numbers” (the first single off debut disc Satan’s Secret) is a fierce rock-commando hurdler swinging on desperate funk vines over yawning lakes of indie rock apathy — a throttling little ditty that positions itself squarely in your dome for all eternity. 3dCosby unveil the sonic goods this Sunday at P.A.’s Lounge in Somerville alongside Left Hand Does and Amaroso, but you can grab the “Paint By Numbers” MP3 now.
