Download Uncle Skeleton's 'Tomart's Haunted Heart' Single for Free [Fresh Tracks]

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 11:13 AM

About 27 days ago — or exactly 27 days ago, whatev — we shared with you Uncle Skeleton's "Sophisticuffs," the lead-off single from the forthcoming All Too Human LP. Well, the intricate, electronic-pop troupe — led, as always, by Ross Wariner — has another preview single in advance of Human, and this one is called "Tomart's Haunted Heart." Like "Sophisticuffs," "Tomart" features some remix and special-bonus-track action, and the art, which was designed by YK Records chief and top-notch local pixel-wrangler Michael Eades, is of a strikingly vintage ilk.

As noted by We Own This Town, "The original vocal track featured on 'Tomart's Haunted Heart' is from a forthcoming Nahnee Bori solo record that Uncle Skeleton procured, re-arranged and used for his own purposes." Hear Nahnee Bori's stuff here. (By the way, remember once-broken-up-but-now-kinda-not-broken-up outfit Kindercastle? Wariner was one half of KC, and Cody Uhler was the other half. You see, Nahnee Bori is Uhler's solo project — his Uncle Skeleton, as it were. You follow?) Word on the digital street is that All Too Human will be out in a couple of months, and that there will be at least one more single between now and then. For now, hear "Tomart's Haunted Heart," a reprise of "Tomart," two remix versions of "Tomart" and an interlude called "Long Gone" below, or download it all for free at Uncle Skeleton's Bandcamp page. The string-drenched arrangement of the reprise could be my favorite bit — Wariner knows how to chart out a string arrangement that will give you goosebumps. Good stuff.
