Floating Points!

Jun 09, 2017

Hey, everyone! 

The new Floating Points record is out!! We listened to it on the show! It was great! Apparently, the band plans to travel to scenic locations around the world to film videos and record music based on the terrain they encounter, and Reflections - Mojave Desert serves as the project’s first installment. This album was heavily influenced by the way certain sounds bounce off of the rock formations in the Mojave Desert--which is rad, because I grew up in that area and love both Floating Points and cool rocks. Here’s the trailer to the movie; I believe the rest can be found on their YouTube page.

In other (non-instrumental?) news, I’ve been digging the new (Sandy) Alex G record. Here’s a fun little interview he did with Spin. A+!

Until next week,

--S
