150-gram vinyl. As the drummer for Yeasayer and a prolific collaborator both in studio and live, Cale Parks's creativity knows no genre. Appalachia features delayed, dreamlike chords syncopating over slow-breathing pads in a dynamic mix; Big Hills delivers muscular bass in opposition to a driving melody; Jade demonstrates Cale's rhythmic intelligence with an unorthodox yet tranquil drum part that carries a starry chord progression; and Lagoon Fool bumps at a languid, triumphant pace with guitar chords, warbling synths, and elastic bass. Australian producer Bell Towers (Public Possession) adds some sparkle and funk to Lagoon Fool while gently upping the tempo.
Format: 12 Inch Vinyl Single
