v i r g o v a n d a l If you’ve ever had the pleasure of someone you actually like looking right into your eyes with hungry eyes (when you really don’t like anyone) you felt that all the way in your soul as well. If not, it’s a bit like this song. Favorite track: Hungry Eyes.

about

It’s been four years since Sweatbox Dynasty, the fourth solo LP from Pennsylvanian experimentalist TOBACCO. In that time, Tom Fec’s project has toured with Nine Inch Nails, provided the theme song to HBO series Silicon Valley, and teamed with Aesop Rock for a collaborative album as Malibu Ken. He now returns to Ghostly International for a characteristically sludged-out 7” release, sounding the alarm for new TOBACCO material in 2020.

Fans may recognize "Hungry Eyes" from recent live sets, or perhaps from the Pokemon porn parody video where it first emerged. TOBACCO’s take on the Eric Carmen song (written by Franke Previte and John DeNicola) obscures its sentimentality, mucking up the desire of the Dirty Dancing classic while honoring its strange and timeless mystique. Pop melodies and structure intact, the TOBACCO treatment is textural: all blown-out bass, analog synths, and drum machine chugging beneath Fec’s unmistakable analog gurgle and hiss.

"I did Hungry Eyes because I just love it. It's a perfect song. I play it straightforward and stay mindful not to disrespect the original."

The B-side, "Can’t Count On Her," doubles down on the damaged, cassette-to-sampler style of the Sweatbox Dynasty sessions — “I guess like the last breath of what I was doing,” says Fec. "Getting it out of the system."
