They're only pushing two colors of iPhone 5C to CTA riders at the Clinton stop. I see what you did there.
These three sisters from Los Angeles have put together a great album. In fact, I consider it to be the best of two worlds, old and new. The first half of this record has a distinct 1980s throwback vibe. Just about every track has some hint of the chorus-rich, palm-muted guitar riffs that helped define most of that decade. Starting around track seven, things take a nice turn and end up back in the present. I'll admit, this release didn't hook me right away. I ended up listening to it a few more times because I found the tone of the first half so curious. After a couple passes through, I was a fan.
I have found some great new music in 2013 so far, and my good luck continues. Saying this is a beautiful electronic album doesn't do it justice. There are so many different textures on each track, I'm not sure how to begin explaining it. Every layer of sound falls together perfectly. Nothing feels forced or cluttered.
Probably my favorite thing about this record is how organic some of the samples feel. There are plenty of rich vibraphone and electric piano bits drizzled about with some solid beats. It's nice and really chill. I will be keeping my ears open for more Shigeto in the future.
Most days, I'm lucky enough to wake up in the greatest city on Earth. Today I settled for second place.
