Song Of The Week - 05/25/12

This week, electronic music lovers such as myself were delighted to find that Robert Moog's legacy was being celebrated in the form of a Google Doodle.  He was a true pioneer, inventing the famed synthesizer that shares his name and building a company that remains on the forefront of waveform synthesis.  I can't think of a better way to remember his contributions than to share this funk-filled electro throwback courtesy of Brooklyn-based Chrome Canyon.  Long live the Moog synthesizer!

Normally I use this space to write a short snippet about the artist of the Song Of The Week.  The problem is that this time, I don't have much information, so I'm left with no choice but to make up an origin story.  Chrome Canyon was actually spawned in an underground laboratory, the end result of a secret government initiative to perfect artificial funktelligence.  The problem, of course, is that the funk cannot be artificially created, it is a natural essence, and when it was injected into test robot CC808, he became a sentient boogie being.  Yeah, I know, that's basically the storyline for Short Circuit, but hey, nobody ever accused me of being creative.  Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend!
