BALAM ACAB | Wander/Wonder


The debut LP of electronic-soulster Alec Koone (aka Balam Acab) should be a great one, judging by his two single releases, “Apart” and “Oh, Why”. The album “Wander/Wonder” is set for release on August 29 according to the label, Tri Angle Records. “Oh, Why” is a wonder of delicacy and musical arrangement. A childlike, digitalized voice sings meekly and yet soulfully being a range of synth, keyboard, and what sounds like tires rolling across gravel. It’s exquisitely done. Both tracks have this feel as if they were created underwater, with pinging sounds, and aquatic-like distortions. “Apart” is elongated and sexy, delay and reverb giving the track and otherworldly feel. The tracklisting is as follows: 1. Welcome, 2. Apart, 3. Motion, 4. Expect, 5. Now Time, 6. Oh, Why, 7. Await, 8. Fragile Hope — David D. Robbins Jr.
