Saddles Gets Bitten By Electronic Bug

If the flu virus is a filament-filled spiky sphere, I wonder what the electronic synth bug looks like.

By the sounds of things, Charles Barth of two-man group Saddles is the latest in a long line of musicians to be infected by the bug. His recently released single, "The Original" features some smartly programmed beats and brightly-tuned key tabs to go along with his folk-rock sensibilities.

With long time collaborator George White officially joining Saddles' lineup, the duo is ready to unleash a new record next month which will feature influences ranging from Toto to David Bazan.
