In August of 2010 we were treated to Balam Acab's first EP, See Birds, via the folks at Tri Angle Records. A year later and we're finally seeing his debut LP, WANDER / WONDER, still kicking it with the Tri Angle homies. I got the chance to give the album a full listen this morning and was absolutely blown away. The tracks are soft and delicate at times, and even in their most beat heavy moments they retain a sense of fragility. Stark and beautiful are words that only begin to describe what has already become one of my favorite records of the year.

WANDER / WONDER is available August 29 in LP, CD and digital formats thanks to the inimitable Tri Angle Records.
