Check Out: Shlohmo - "wen uuu"

Publish date:

The LA producer Shlohmo has been dropping records with some pretty So-Cal titles since he started attracting attention last summer – first Bad Vibes, now an EP called Vacation. Our first taste of that short collection of tracks is the dreamy, ambient “wen uuu,” and it pretty accurately fits the curious/creepy descriptor Schlomo gave to Bad Vibes: “night time back yard noises.”

“Wen uuu” sounds like hearing your neighbors’ raucous party through a drunken dream, your window fan, and the breeze – cut up, inscrutable top 40 vocals, poppy synth riffs broken down to languid, druggy ambient drones, that bass heartbeat a ghostly, underwater thrum. Vacation drops February 7 on Friends of Friends, and will feature remixes from the likes of Nicholas Jaar.
