New 7" from Emotional, "Pain 4 Pleasure"/"Hand For Hire"

Emotional, the project of Melted Toys member Brian Wakefield earned a spot on my top 50 in 2012 for the LP Feeling (review here), so I was interested to learn that he released new 7" on Gnar in February, and has a new video for the lead track.  Below are the video for "Pain 4 Pleasure" and a stream for the B-Side.  The record presents interesting contrasts as the title track is an intriguing experimental pop song with warped sounds and vocals low in the mix, while "Hand for Hire" has a summery, '60s pop vibe.

Brian also released an 8-track album titled Ice Sculptor III, available from Gnar at this link.  You can test spin a track below --
