2/28/11 Wavelength of the Moment: NEW SHLOHMO

Oh yeah. 2011 is getting off to a bangin' start. And I can think of no better way to usher in the first month of spring than a lush (what I did there) new jam from L.A. beat scene stalwart Shlohmo.

Smooth, layered, gorgeous, and soulful. This is a peek at the upcoming Places EP on Friends of Friends, in anticipation of his debut (assuming you don't count 2010's Shlohmoshun Deluxe release) LP, Bad Vibes. Definitely slapping down some cash for those babies.

Do give it a listen, this dude is the whole reason I got into the whole Low End Theory scene in the first place. He's a master of atmospherics, with an incredibly subtle production style that can't be matched. Plus he played all the instruments you're hearing on the above track: guitar, bass, keys...makes me excited for his future. Though his past is definitely worth researching.

Fuck this week. But after this it's spring break, and that means more reliable blogging (from me at least). Sorry for the hiatus, folks.
