Ambient-leaning electro composer Elephant & Castle (aka David Vincent Reep) is gearing up to drop his first full-length LP Transitions soon, and he’s warming up his audience with an album cut that features his most famous guest – first single “En Memoria” boasts a vocal contribution from Tune-Yards’ Merrill Garbus.
Reep’s chilly layered drones and bubbling found-sound orchestrations perfectly back up Garbus’s haze-hidden, customarily singsong vocals. We particularly love when Reep layers up island-y percussion and guitars with hazey drones and Garbus’s lullaby melody. Transitions is out March 13.
