Brooklyn art-rockers High Places have yet to release a full-length album, but theyre already among the most beloved bands in their borough. The duos fragile, oddball instrumentationbassoon, breathy vocals, laptopbelies a towering melodic savvy; at half the volume, the band puts its more strident peers to shame. Fellow Brooklynites Telepathe helped blaze the trail that High Places are currently skipping down: They were making minimalist electronics n drums collages as far back as 2004.
