Princeton producer Seth Haley – better known as Com Truise – has announced the July 17th release of In Decay, a collection of early recordings and rarities. The compilation follows two EPs and one full-length, each displaying Haley's synth-heavy, Eighties-obsessed vision.

"Open," the first track on In Decay, offers an early glimpse at that path: part vintage video game soundtrack, part sci-fi fantasy, the track introduces Haley's obsessions with eight-bit-style synthesizers and thick dance beats.

According to the producer, the track is especially prescient. "'Open' is virtually opening the vault on the early infant stages of the Com Truise project," Haley tells Rolling Stone. "I feel like it's a mission statement of sorts for what would follow."

“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."
