I’m a late-comer to another party which is why you’ve never seen Balam Acab on the site before, that and I just never learn.
The Tri Angle Records’ latest signing is getting ready to release the Pennsylvanian’s (he’s actually just up the road from me in Mechanicsburg) debut album “WANDER/WONDER”, and much like some of the other releases from Tri Angle, namely How To Dress Well‘s white vinyl edition of “Love Remains”, the sound and atmosphere and overall tone on this new song is otherworldly.
For people who like that down-trodden Lo-Fi sound as if it was recorded by a team of skeletons in an underground cave and sampled vocal refrains, you’ll love this. It’s dark and dreary and contemplative, and it’d suit a winter release more than a summer release, or maybe just a shitty rainy day in the summer. His debut album comes out on August 29th, with “Oh, Why” being the first track form the album to drop which you can grab below.
