Shlohmo is an artist I discovered this year and I’ve found myself returning to his music again and again. There are always albums that if I’d heard in time would have made my year end list and Bad Vibes is definitely one of those. As much as the word is used and abused these days, there is a beautifully organic quality to the record that continues on his excellent Vacation EP. For me this is perfect background music for reading, writing or working but I’ve also given it several concentrated headphone spins and found alot of nice, hidden moments there too. He’s done remixes for artists like Burial and Drake that show him applying his sound to their blueprint to create a new sound that is completely his own. As a person that devours music on a daily basis it’s always satisfying to find an artist that encourages you to go back for repeat spins and rewards you with new layers each time you do. Highly recommended listening.
