North Highlands –Wild One
In a weird and unfortunate turn of events, despite praise from lots of good, smart people (ahem), local outfit North Highlands wound up without a label to release their debut full-length, Wild One, so they did it themselves. Officially available as of October 18, it is every bit as elegant and detailed as I expected it to be, with elements of folk and post-rock featured prominently throughout. The whole thing is surprisingly hooky, too, and even more surprisingly danceable. Listen at north-highlands.bandcamp.com, and then, if you own a record label, press it on vinyl and send me a copy.
