balam acabs first LP- WANDER/WONDER

I wanted to wait until the release date was fairly close to say a few words on the new material from Pennsylvania resident Alec Koone, aka Balam Acab. In exactly 2 weeks he will indulge us in the first full length LP of his career entitled WANDER/WONDER. Last years See Birds EP was groundbreaking, walking all over the bounds of a vast array of genres, but never seeming to overstep and fully give into one particular sound. The distant beats gained him major hype on the bloggernet world and beyond, selling out represses of the EP(even cd's...). Personally it was on heavy rotation in my listening for a hot minute. New tunes don't disappoint, in fact they seem to be a continuation of previous sounds, blending construed voices and mangled melodies into something to listen to while floating amongst a moonlit ocean towards nothing and everything. It was produced by Koone, and mixed with help from Sam Haar(from Blondes), and will drop August 29th on Tri Angle Records. Pre-order from Rough Trade Shops here. Check out the latest taste below.
