Well, the full track title is “Line of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair),” but I think that was too long to fit into the space allowed for some of our headlines, so… The important thing is that we share the track with as many ears as possible and if you have a soft spot for catchy, big sounding electro-pop, then the newest release from Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, A Moment Apart, is one that you need to spend some time with. THE BIG BEAT is nominally a rock show but we like to reach a little further out into the world of new music, so if you’ve enjoyed artists like Hudson Mohawke and M83 on the show in the past, then you’re probably digging what you’re hearing above.
