“Come True” - Balam Acab
Our love of Balam Acab is both tremendously overt (his Wander / Wonder was number 3 on our list of top albums of 2011) and completely justifiable (his music is incredible). Well, the younger-than-me-but-far-more-talented Alec Koone posted mediafire links to two unreleased (and a little unpolished, but I can get down with that) tracks last week on his Twitter, “Just Stay” [link] and “Come True” [link], causing me to start sobbing because I was stuck at my day job, thus unable to listen. This occurrence is not infrequent.
The tracks were well worth sobbing over. They’re beautiful, dark, and watery (aqueous was already taken), as all great Balam Acab material is, with the latter track having an R&B bent and a throbbing beat that work especially nicely. Balam Acab has also been releasing a few remixes worth checking out, such as “Shorty Swing My Way.” [link]
