Los Angeles based multi-instrumentalist Evan Voytas is gearing up to release his debut LP, Feel Me, on Dovecote on January 24th. The album's lead single, the twinkly "Can't Let Anybody Know Who You Are," combines Evan's dreamy falsetto with a synth-jazz blend. Voytas explains that the track was inspired by life in Los Angeles: "I wrote this song here in L.A. I feel like L.A. has a hazy, mystical quality to it. People appear and disappear, reappear as someone else. This song documents that phenomenon," he says. "I like to hide out. I like to embrace mystery rather than be explicit about things. I like people who I can't understand, who never settle on an identity."

Evan Voytas' debut, Feel Me, will be available on January 24th, but you can download "Can't Let Anybody Know Who You Are" for free here.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
