Next week, Joel Ford (one half of Ford and Lopatin, formally Games, with Dan ‘Oneohtrix Point Never’ Lopatin), releases a solo EP as Airbird.

If you didn’t believe our recent piece on the influence of Boards of Canada on today’s musical landscape, then one listen to Trust should have you convinced – consciously or not, it starts off sounding a lot like Scotland’s finest purveyors of dusty electronics. Naturally though, being Joel Ford, plenty of nods to the ’80s emerge, with parped out funk riffs, yearning vocals and the drum reverb set firmly to “yacht”. Software will release Trust on May 28; we’re streaming it below.
