Chain GangChain Gang

Denver's Kamtin Mohager is The Chain Gang Of 1974, a one-man band whose retro synthy music is well represented in the atmospheric "Don't Walk Away", the closing track on his recently-released album "White Guts". Download it above.

I also couldn't think of a better first-of-three opener for this Friday night's free show on Governors Island which is being headlined by Caribou and also features Phantogram on the bill...
