Let me introduce you to Dangerous Cans, the new project of Brooklyn electro-pop artist Brian Time. He notes that others have commented that his new singles, including “Feel Something” and “Pretty Trash”, have remnants of what makes Washed Out great. Yeah, I can hear it, but Time does a good job distancing himself from sounding too-much like Ernest Greene and creating his own sound.
In fact, I think Dangerous Cans has a sound closer to Blackbird Blackbird than Washed Out, but whatever. Either way, it’s pretty damn good.
“Feel Something” is a quick favorite with erratic double-time electro-pop tinkerings — what Time accurately dubs as “gristle and sizzle” — backed by a chill beat and laid-back vocals. “Pretty Trash” takes it down a notch (I assume here is where people truly give Dangerous Cans the Washed Out nod).
Time is in the process of putting together some slow-motion music videos, which I think will go nicely with the sounds he creates. He’s also working on his debut EP. He’s been around. Originally from Michigan, Time relocated to Boston, San Francisco and finally ended up in Brooklyn.
