Audio: Black Meteoric Star (Finally) + Live in New York City


Chances are you have not been consistently banging "Black Spring" from Gavin Russom and Delia Gonzalez's wildly slept on Days of Mars, waiting years for new tracks of the breadth and heft. In F53 last year we talked to Gavin Russom amidst the promise of three 12-inch singles of new solo material recorded as Black Meteoric Star. Those never came for 2009, but on Friday we saw Russom open for The Juan Maclean. Shrouded in scarves and possibly a wig, Russom hunched over a keyboard and some anonymous equipment he'd built himself, tagged in crummy handwriting, "relax and enjoy the ride." Now, if you weren't within ten feet of the stage, it would not only have been difficult to read that, but also to see his dancers, two intense women in high heels and loose flowing short cut silver fabric. We definitely saw a boob. Then we bought records! White label 12-inch singles we were promised so many months ago. Check out Russom's thirty minute set of homegrown acid house on Beats in Space for a taste.
