We've been fans of Expensive Looks, the New York producer known to his parents as Alec Feld, and his shimmery Balearic pop for a while, so we're excited to premiere his new EP, Northern Winds. It may be only four tracks long, but Feld's got a knack for expansive jams, so the whole thing's twenty-two minutes that sound effortlessly like a slice of summer. Abstracted vocal samples, clubby backbeats, and undulating synth lines are the name of the game - sometimes (see: "Idol") they're instantly catchy and deliriously upbeat, elsewhere (see: "Ansel"), a woozy melancholic tinge runs through. Check it out.
