When you think about it, Expensive Looks isn’t really too much of an erroneous name for the production project of the very young New Yorker Alec Feld – think of the glittery, clubby, Fashion Week-ready jams you probably expect from a project of that name, and now imagine them in space, shot through a lens smeared with Vaseline the way they used to do it in 1920s Hollywood to make certain scenes seem extra romantic, and you might have a partial vision of the lo-fi house jams Feld’s created on his debut record Dark Matters, which Group Tightener will drop on January 17. New single “Moving Visions” is quite stunning, indicative of Feld’s, uh, vision, as well as his talent – shimmering, hazy synth riffs glitter like water or diamonds, catchy beats make you want to shut your eyes and just groove.

Like most burgeoning producers, Expensive Looks first garnered attention with a variety of well received remixes of familiar names. You can listen to and download Feld’s remixes of Radiohead, Grizzly Bear and DOM here.
