RIYL: [adult swim], Ghostly International, Tycho

Label: BARO Records

I don’t know about you (and perhaps this really only applies to us statesiders), but I’m already over this election-related news. Clinton this, Trump that, blahblahblah. It’s a blessing that music can take us away from bearing the weight of the world, if but for a moment. BARO is a label you’ll need to be keeping your eyes on, and as far as I’m aware this is the third-to-last thing they have available… for the moment. High Passes is an odd medium between the sound collage wizardry of Animal Collective, the dubby jazz informed compositions of Tortoise, and a host of Ghostly International artists – namely, and of course this is my opinion, Shigeto and Tycho. High Passes is a great cure for those who are suffering from high blood pressure with all the deplorable news leaking in to the world. High Passes is a chilled mist to glaze your skin with in the midst of this boiling world. Listen to High Passes below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
