THE FRESH PICK OF THE WEEK:
This episode’s pick is the new album, This Behavior, from the Detroit electro duo ADULT.. The two members, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller, craft another chapter in their storied career with songs that mixed the dark and haunting with the lively and dynamic. There’s always an interesting dichotomy in the pair’s music where there is always this sort of dance that the darkness and the light do within their rhythms.
