If you’re like most of the world, you’re just recently discovering Australian singer/musician Gotye, now that his smash single “Somebody That I Used To Know” is getting played every 15 minutes (deservedly so, because the song is the shit) on every radio station both near and far. If you’re like me, however, you’ve been up on Gotye since the beginning of the year and have already wore said smash single completely the fuck out before you ever discovered other people even knew how to pronounce his name properly. But that’s not me bragging, because even I was late getting put onto Gotye.
I’m not sure what song Gotye is planning to release as his next single here in the states, but when I first discovered Gotye there was a song that caught my attention just as much as “Somebody…,” if not moreso. A little song called “State of the Art.” It’s an incredibly creative ode to one his favorite instruments, the Lowrey Cotillion Model D-575 electronic organ. Check out the song with equally amazing animated video below:
You can’t tell me this song isn’t the absolute, unadultered, shit of all shits. Gotye is the motherfucking man. As an added bonus, if you’re a reggae fan, you absolutely MUST, as in you don’t have a choice, MUST check out the reggae remix of “Somebody That I Used To Know,” courtesy of the talented JR Blender (http://jrblender.com/promo/).
