Finally repressed! Following a string of well-received EPs, Shlohmo (aka LA native Henry Laufer) drops Bad Vibes, his proper full-length debut album for the Friends of Friends label. The album was inspired by the desire to write songs and create a release of full-range instrumentation and vocals all his own and represents the spawn of what some are calling a new "rhythm and blues" - one that swings and sways under the backbone of Henry's own take on modern electronic music. Augmented with delicate slide guitar playing, homemade synth sounds and lilting, lush atmospherics and tuneful melodies, Shlohmo's output here is one that will take your mind adrift and set your soul at ease. Check "Big Feelings," "Places," "Anywhere But Here," "Parties," "Just Us," "I Can't See You," and "Seriously" for a taste. 13 tracks of chilled-out musical musings for fans of Teebs, Boards of Canada, and Mount Kimbie. Recommended.
