When he's not cooking up pleasing pan-electronic music as FaltyDL, Drew Lustman is making equally enjoyable music on his own name—and he's putting out some of that music in the form of a new album, The Crystal Cowboy, which drops on April 21 via Planet Mu. Here's the Chris Shen-directed video for album cut "Watch A Man Die," a jungle-rushing tune accompanied by atmospheric visuals and speeding city landscapes.
'''Watch A Man Die' was the first track I completed for the album," Lustman told FADER in an email. "I made 4 previous versions and played all of them out in clubs before I finished it. The strings are straight Prodigy 'One Love' vibes, in the way that only strings can elevate a tune. I don't want to tell you where the vocal sample comes from because I love how you form your own context and relationship with a sample. It will most likely cement itself in your brain on your very first listen, and remain there in that special place for years. I think it kicks off this album how I often do, with little regard to how the rest of the record will sound!"
