Brimming with delicious simplicity, Psapp's 2006 release The Only Thing I Ever Wanted grooves blissfully between post-rock and bossa nova. The duo of singer Galia Durant and studio guru Carim Clasmann swish through 11 hypnotic melodies built on a sample-based pop some call clunktronica, rife with everything from horns and maracas to squeaky floorboards and crumpling paper. Live instruments such as piano, brushed percussion, and xylophone comprise most of the musical samples, creating a powerful hybrid of earthy folk and sophisticated electronica.
