High Places Release New Video, Mixtape


If nothing else, this new and somewhat maddening High Places video–in which Rob Barber and Mary Pearson wander hills and dunes and trees for twelve long minutes to no particular purpose–is an excellent delivery vehicle for its song, the still-lovely and leisurely “Late Bloomer.” Those looking for a slightly more galvanizing experience might try the mixtape the band just made with Hisham Bharoocha (whose Soft Circle provides the other side of “Late Bloomer”‘s 12”) for Vice, which goes from vintage Nausea to Underworld in three moves and from Underworld to the Delfonics in just two. It’s a tape with a keen arc and a keen ear and, like everything else these days, a Drake cameo.
