Song of the Day: Listen to The Strokes’ Producer Gordon Raphael’s New Song “Savage”

Master producer Gordon Raphael has the Midas touch when it comes to producing. He’s worked with The Strokes, Regina Spektor, Damon Albarn, Ian Brown, and small but fierce bands like Hinds and the list goes on. While he has the golden touch to producing, he is first and foremost an artist, musician, and songwriter. Via email, he states “I love producing, but playing guitar and writing songs is what I’ve always done,” he enthuses. “I wanted to show what I can do on the other side of the desk all the time, but producing kept getting in the way.”

Raphael is making up for it with 12 songs that reflect a lifetime listening to music but are particularly inspired by the glam rock era David Bowie, the inimitable guitar sound of Mick Ronson, the glam pop perfection of Kimono My House-era Sparks and a love of Frank Zappa, prog rock. The song will have you dreaming in technicolor. It’s hazy and dripping with psychedelia but has a mirrored glaze via the glam rock inspiration. You’ll want to light some incense, turn on your kaleidoscopic lights, wear your best platform boots and a leather jacket to dance to this song. We can’t get enough of it. Listen to Savage below.

Most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces. Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures. Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook: @youthquakermimi
