Ever had a sure thing that managed to exceed all expectations? Dan the Automator’s new passion project Pillowfight surpassed all anticipatory hopes and then some. A collaboration between Dan the Automator (famous for Handsome Boy Modeling School, Deltron 3030 and the first Gorillaz album) and newcomer Emily Wells, Pillowfight picks up where the Lovage project curiously left off. The delivery is a deft combo of downtempo sexy cool, brimming with the Automator’s pristine multi-layered production. Wells coos and sings with with effortless sultry appeal, while the band drops the beat like no one ever started suing over sample use. Amazingly so, the band also included none other than Kid Koala nimbly shredding the wheels of steel, Peeping Tom’s Lady Butterscotch on keyboards and Lateef the Truthspeaker on backing vocals. Wells sings, “Sometimes I get sentimental” like a breakup never really took place, longing the for oh-so bad feelings not quite forgotten. No one’s heard about Pillowfight yet, but they will. It’s a surefire hit.
