One Track Mind: Brian Eno + Karl Hyde, “Daddy’s Car” from Someday World (2014)

Just as much as the first track from Brian Eno’s forthcoming collaboration with Underworld’s Karl Hyde was girded by a doomy sense of portent, “Daddy’s Car” is a compulsively listenable ride — all scronky keyboard blips, ass-moving beats and late-night promise.
