German electronica producer Kangding Ray dropped his third LP back in May, OR. But of course, it hasn't caught a ton of buzz in the U.S., because the only label its been released on is a German one.
Still, the ambient beatscapes painted on OR are a great listen. The evolving beat on "Leavalia Scheme" is backed with a wall of light distortion. It's a pocket of quiet bliss in a world that grows louder every day.
