New High Places: "Late Bloomer"

New High Places: "Late Bloomer"

Los Angeles certainly seems to have made a mellower band out of New York exile duo High Places, who return to the city for the It Came From Brooklyn series at the Guggenheim on August 14. "Late Bloomer," destined for a Post Present Medium split 12" with Soft Circle, is a vaguely choral and languid dip in the High Places id: lots of echo, chirping birds, tinny wrist-bracelet cymbals, dripping water, slithering electronics, floating bits of stray melody, and a brief but convincing Mary Pearson incantation. It's lovely and we envy them their out-of-town ease. Stream it at Pitchfork.
