It’s been a fantastic few weeks for fans of Josh Smith’s musical forte. If the name doesn’t quite ring a bell, it may be because you know him as one half of Detroit cosmic pop duo Gosh Pith, who were we’ve been fervently supporting here on IHM. Though it looks like Gosh Pith may have disbanded, or gone on extended hiatus, we’re elated that Josh has re-emerged as new solo project Yoshi Flower to give us much of the same quirky, forward-thinking innovation that he gave us with Gosh Pith. Yoshi Flower debuted with whimsically whizzing alt/electro-pop song Movies last month before teaming up with singer songwriter/production prodigy Elohim on Panic Attacks. And he’s quickly followed both of those gems up with a second solo single, Just On Drugs, a hazy prancing, gritty drifting effusion of Smith’s unique blend of hip hop, electro, and alt pop. Yoshi Flower’s Just On Drugs is just the sort of binary sonic high that we need, a playful and youthful, yet pensive and stirring listen. Re-visit Movies and Panic Attacks on Soundcloud, here. Catch Yoshi Flower on tour with Elohim. Find out about dates and tickets, here. We can’t wait for their stop in San Francisco at Slim’s this weekend.

Over the weekend we shared a striking debut from a new project named Yoshi Flower, which as it turns out, is the solo project of Josh Smith from our Detroit favorites, Gosh Pith. We also learned that Josh has moved in with another favorite of ours, singer songwriter and producer Elohim, in Los Angeles, and they’re hitting the road together on tour soon. As if the surprise news couldn’t get any better, the pair have even collaborated on a brand new song! Panic Attacks is a tenderly waltzing electronic pop song which, despite its title, is quite the chill dreamy, pensive gliding affair. Elohim and Yoshi Flower trade off on intimate and heartfelt vocals on their soft lulling minimalist lullaby about anxiety and remorse. If only panic attacks in real life were as sublime as listening to panic attack! To add even more splendid news to this growing list of reasons to celebrate, Elohim has also announced her self-titled debut album, due to arrive April 27th. It’s obviously going to be another wonderful year for this Elohim fan, and I can’t wait for what Yoshi Flower brings us next! Pre-order Elohim’s debut album, here. Panic Attacks is available, here. And you can find out about Elohim and Yoshi Flower’s tour, here.

Lately, I’ve been wondering what Detroit’s Gosh Pith has been up to, since it’s been a very long time since we’ve heard from the two Joshes of that genre defying act. Though Gosh Pith is still silent on all fronts, I found out on Friday that Josh Smith has moved in with electronica and electro-pop phenom Elohim in Los Angeles and started a new solo project named Yoshi Flower! The two are even heading out on tour together and have a collaboration out, which I’ll be sharing soon. Are you as mind blown as we are? I’m seriously floored by this wonderful news. Two of IHM’s favorites collide and we couldn’t be more excited about this fresh turn of events. Yoshi Flower hits the ground running with a sensational first single named Movies, an easy breezy, whimsically whizzing alt and electro-pop aria with an alluring trap cadence and witty lyrics that immediately grabs hold of our ears and catches our fancy. Movies is described as a hazy, romantic romp through cinematic trappings, which Josh himself likens to “nailing the coffin closed for genres and the old, constructed ‘normal’”. We can’t get enough of this brilliant hybrid construction, which made its debut on venerated publication The Fader. Stay tuned for our share of Yoshi Flower’s Elohim collaboration, too, it’ll knock your socks off.

I grew up a fan of the original Clash Of The Titans, having been won over by both Bubo the adorable steampunk owl and been fascinated with a villain like Medusa. It’s the serpentine demeanor of that legendary creature that snakes into our ears, courtesy of our favorite Detroit genre benders Gosh Pith, on new single Medu$a. But this gem of a whimsical tune doesn’t terrorize. No, it delights. It’s a pop fizzing treat, a tease of a hip hop imbibed jam. Smooth harmonies, twisting beats, and cool simmering vocals lure us into Gosh Pith’s world, where we’ll gladly turn to stone for this sumptuous taste from the duo’s forthcoming debut album expected to arrive in 2017. Those fortunate enough get to lose themselves in this labyrinthian song live while Gosh Pith continues their tour from Philadelphia to Toronto this month, details here.

You could say that IHM has been “true blue” fans of Gosh Pith, having been a fan of the Detroit duo’s creative fusion of hip hop and electronic pop since their debut over two years ago. Josh and Josh never fail at intoxicating us with Gosh Pith’s foggy soup of spacey electronica, passionate guitar, and ardent gritty vocals. New song True Blue is their latest cosmic floating, heady rousing tune, a woozy cathartic tale inspired by being pulled over by a state trooper late one night and the trippy hour that ensued. Gosh Pith will be heading out on tour this fall, and if my experience catching them in San Francisco earlier this year was any indication, this is one show you don’t want to miss.

It was nearly a month ago that I finally got to see Detroit duo Gosh Pith live. They made their San Francisco debut at Popscene and played a powerfully searing set. If you get the chance to see Josh and Josh perform live, I highly recommend you make it out. Their brand of “cosmic trap” translates spectacularly live, with one Josh tearing it up on guitar and the other Josh on the synths. Gosh Pith returns this week with a brand new jam. On In My Car, they hypnotize us with a hazy fusion of slow burning R&B and nebulous hip hop. I feel as if I’m in that very car. It’s 3AM and the roads are deserted. We slow cruise and pensive chill as wispy tendrils of misty fog curl about us. In My car is available now from iTunes. Gosh Pith does have a string of tour dates coming up this fall. For locations and dates, go here.
