  • Tri Angle will release Wander / Wonder, the first full-length from Balam Acab, AKA Alec Koone, in August. With his only release to date, a five-track EP titled See Birds that dropped in 2010, Koone caught international attention with his take on slo-mo house and experimental hip-hop. According to a press release, the 20-year-old American's latest effort sees him expand on the textures explored in his previous effort, resulting in an undeniably electronic yet strangely organic musical platform. "It's not classical music," Koone explains. "But in the tradition of a classical work like a Bach Cello Suite, I see it as more of a whole musical piece with themes/motifs/ideas reoccurring throughout, connecting the tracks together as opposed to simply being a collection of songs that sit next to each other in isolation."
