Javelin+Guardian Alien+Life Size Maps
Brooklyn-based avant-dance duo Javelin named their upcoming album Hi Beams “because the songs evoke to us a sense of sky, stars, night, and warmth.” Hearing the r&b guitar figures and atmospheric strut of recent single “Nnormal”, I imagine Drake and 40 smoking weed under a star projector, giggling about getting Jamie xx and Patrick Adams together for Take Care’s follow-up. Maybe they can bring in Javelin too, who sounded great doing an impromptu live “sesh” with Stalley and Curren$y in 2009.
