The Binary Marketing Show is a lo-fi, intensely experimental electro-pop and rock duo based out Brooklyn that's produced a tiny little work of art I recently discovered called Clues From The Past.  It's a cozy collection of alluring ear candy that melds strange sonic textures with woozy horns, digital noise, found sounds and distant, haunting voices.

Bethany Carder and Abram Morphew say they met in a post-apocalyptic world while "wandering the ancient underground tunnels beneath (a) mystical city, in search of a place that cured the loneliness of existing in one's mind."  Heavy.

This is my favorite cut from The Binary Marketing Show's EP.  The name alone speaks volumes.

"I Hate My Brain'
